    Description

    Pike & Joyce is a partnership between two legendary South Australian wine families: Neil Pike is one of Australia’s leading winemakers, and the Joyce family are 5th generation wine growers. Subtle notes of nashi pear, nectarine and musk, along with a little flint and wet river stones. The palate is medium bodied displaying the pear and stone fruit mentioned above, as well as some mineral/stony textures giving length and structure. Balanced acidity ensures the wine finishes clean and focussed.
    Rated 94/100 by Huon Hooke 91/100 by James Halliday.
