Riesling Traditionale 2018, Pikes

£17.50 per bottle

About this wine

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.”

    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."
