The 2021 Pikes The Dogwalk Cabernets is a brilliant medium to deep red. Perfumed violets, crushed florals, red currants and cassis. Hints of the tell-tale cabernet leafiness play with subtle clove and spice. This wine is medium to full bodied, bright red and blue fruits, slinky and supple in structure. Subtle use of French oak compliment the bright fruits. A balanced finish of lush red fruits wrapped in subtle elegant tannins.

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 produce fruit with a perfect balance of good colour, high natural acidity, and concentrated flavours.

Cabernet Sauvignon (80%) is one of the Clare Valley’s best varieties, and when it reaches its greatest potential, it can rival Riesling. Cabernet Franc (20%) is not as widely planted in the region, but blends extremely well with its relative, contributing an elegance and brightness to the wine.
