The 2021 vintage Pikes The Assemblage GSM is a medium cherry red coolour. With bright fruit forward bouquet featuring cherries, blueberries, raspberry liqueur and hints of chocolate. Reminiscent of black forest cake. As the wine opens up, spice and subtle charry oak aromas emerge. This wine is medium-bodied, plush red fruits on up front, continuing the theme. Soft elegant tannins and hints of spice provide a seamless palate roll from start to finish. Beautifully balanced.

Winery & Vintage Info

Pikes Wines is grounded by family. From brothers to sons, since 1984 when the Pike family first stepped foot on Polish Hill River soil and decided to make wine together.

Their site is unique, with tough acidic soils overlaying ancient dark grey siltstone of the Kadlunga Slate formation, which has lay beneath Polish Hill River for 650 million years.

Their wine style is elegant and refined, yet approachable. A style that has been forged over many years by geology and geography, viticultural learnings, and a hands-off winemaking approach.

Good winter rain allowed soil profiles to be full, giving the vines a great start to the growing season. A remarkably cool summer followed, providing perfect conditions for healthy balanced vines. The long ripening period produced fruit with a perfect balance of good colour, high natural acidity and concentrated flavours.

100% Estate grown, 'The Assemblage' is Pikes Northern Rhone inspired blend. Grenache brings the aromatic bright fruits and palate structure, Shiraz provides plush mid palate and blue fruits, and Mourvèdre provides dark fruits and spice.

The 2021 blend consists of 34% Grenache, 33% Shiraz, 33% Mourvèdre.
