About this wine

Pikes Red Mullet is a juicy, fruit-forward blend of Merlot (61%), Sangiovese (16%), Shiraz (13%) and Grenache([10%).  Attractive aromas of ripe, dark berries and blue fruits with a fleck of dark chocolate and vanilla also somewhere in the mix.  The palate is very approachable displaying the same ripe, dark fruits mentioned above that are nicely balanced by some lovely fine tannins on the finish.  Made predominantly from Merlot, the Red Mullet is a little more serious than the name suggests. While providing affordable every day drinking, this wine delivers plenty on the quality front.

Food Pairing: Try it with a good old fashioned Shepherd’s Pie.

Ageing potential: Drink now and over the next 3-4 years.
