2020 Pikes & Joyce Rapide Sauvignon Blanc 

Region: Adelaide Hills, SA

 

Aroma: Typical aromas of intense guava and passionfruit first then more subtle notes of crushed nettle, snow pea and lemongrass emerge that make for a very attractive wine in the glass.

Palate: The palate is crisp, dry and brimming with the characters mentioned above, displaying a core of acidity that that sees the wine finish clean, long and pleasantly dry.

Summary: This Rapide Sauvignon Blanc aims to deliver bright, fresh fruit and early drinkability. It should drink nicely now and over the next couple of summers. Try it with grilled Garfish fillets.

The Pike & Joyce brand represents the coming together of two long established South Australian families to form a partnership in wine.

The Pike family, long established in winemaking and viticulture and the Joyce family, 'fifth generation' horticulturists, have come together to develop this 25ha joint venture vineyard at Lenswood in the Adelaide Hills wine region of South Australia.

The vineyard site, which was previously apple and pear orchards, is characterized by steep North and East facing slopes and possesses fantastic gravelly clay and loam soils which are ideally suited to the classic cool climate varieties that have been planted – Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Gruner Veltliner, Gewurztraminer, Riesling, Shiraz, Dolcetto, Nebbiolo and Pinot Noir. The vineyard is all hand pruned and handpicked with the fruit being chilled overnight in the Joyce cool rooms, before being transported to Pike’s Clare Valley winery for vinification.
