Pike’s 34th release of their most important and popular wine – the Riesling Traditionale 2018. Aromas of lime, lemon and fresh cut apple with a subtle hint of bath powder aromas. Spotlessly clean, it displays the clarity and purity of Clare Valley Riesling from a high-quality vintage. The palate is fresh, bright and delicate. The citrus fruit provides up front flavour while the mouth filling acidity kicks in at the end and sees the wine finish clean dry and refreshing. The “Trad” is always a lovely drink on release, but 5 -7 years in the cellar will amply reward those who like their Rieslings with some bottle development. Drink with any seafood really, but it’s pairing with fresh shucked oysters is hard to top.
James Suckling – June 27, 2019 – 92 points: “A very fresh, juicy and quite intensely flavoured Riesling with fresh lime juice, stony nuances and fragrant perfume, all combined on a polished, sleek palate.”
