Pikes Traditionale Riesling

The Riesling vines that produce Pikes Dry Riesling Traditionale enjoy east to southeast exposure and for the most part are ungrafted with just a small percentage planted on rootstock. The soils are red brown earth over clay, with slate and broken bluestone sub-soil.  It is this slate and bluestone sub-soil as well as the cooler climate of Polish Hill that contributes to Riesling’s intense mineral character and complexity.

Tasting Notes

Starbright pale lemon with green highlights.  Dry Riesling Traditionale is fresh, crisp, and dry with bright lemon, lime and slate - all seamlessly wound around a spine of bright, mineral acidity providing length and drive.

Food Pairing

An incomperable oyster wine.
