Pikes The Merle Reserve Riesling 2018


Fruit for the Merle Reserve Riesling comes from the Polish Hill region in Clare Valley. Perhaps more importantly though the wine is named after the matriarch of the Pikes family (Merle). This is their reserve wine with plenty of concentration length and a little lees ageing for extra complexity and an extra savoury character.

A brilliant pale green hue in the glass. The Merle tends to show subtlety and restraint in youth with a nose characterised by fresh citrus zest and hints of wet stone. On the palate a bristling spine of acidity brings the wine to life and highlights a core of pure fruit and exhilirating minerality. The wine is fresh, crisp and dry and the finish lasts.

Japanese seafood dishes especially sashimi and sushi, oysters, raw seafood, creamy sauces and goat cheese dishes all pair beautifully with this exceptional dry Riesling.
