THE RED MULLET
2015 Pikes Polish Hill River Estate
|Grapes||Shiraz, Grenache, Merlot, Sangiovese|
|Origin||Australia, South Australia|
Really true Aussie red, with pungent, black fruit and mint chocolate flavours, mouthfilling and full of sunshine with a delicious balanced finish. Drinking range: 2018 - 2022 L&S (Jul 2018)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Smells very very ripe – Ribena-like. Tastes ripe and sweet, but there is a bit of green minty earthiness. And something that reminds me of roast bone marrow and crushed walnuts. Easy to like without being especially demanding. Excellent curry wine! Drinking range: 2018 - 2020 Rating: 16 Tamlyn Currin - www.JancisRobinson.com(May 2018)
Pikes Polish Hill River Estate
James Suckling writing about Pikes in 2018 says 'They’re good, consistent wines packed with soulful interest, offering great value.' We certainly agree and are delighted to still be working together after more than 20 years. Owned by the Pike brothers, one of whom (Andrew) was for many years the senior viticulturist with Southcorp, the other (Neil) a former winemaker at Mitchells. Pikes now has its own winery, with Neil Pike presiding.
Generously constructed and flavoured wines are the order of the day, but wines which also have a restraint and a drinkability far ahead of some of the 'maximum one glass' reds that seem to dominate Australian shows and exports.
