Hills & Valleys Riesling 2018, Pikes

£12.45 per bottle

About this wine

Pikes Hills & Valley Riesling made from premium Riesling fruit, displays a fresh, off-dry character. It has attractive aromas of citrus blossom, stone fruit and bath powder with a little swirl of wet slate lurking somewhere in the mix too.  Fresh, clean and bright; the palate is full of lemon and gentle stone fruit, with the crisp acidity balancing the hint of residual sweetness and providing a long, clean finish.  This wine is made with immediate enjoyment in mind – although 3-5 years in the cellar won’t do it any harm at all. Great with any foods with a hint of spice.

James Suckling – June 27, 2019 – 88 points: “A lightly sweet Riesling with tinned-pear and lemon character. Medium body. Soft and easy.”

    string(488) "Another white varietal with a claim to be the greatest in the world. So many dimensions possible, so true to its terroir and capable of producing wines through the full spectrum of sweetness, from steely dry to richly exotic. With notably high natural acidity Riesling has a firm backbone for extended ageing. Never married to oak, it is all about citrus notes, orange blossom, lime, lemon and conference pear. With time in bottle, tell-tale notes of kerosene start to appear on the nose."
