Pike & Joyce

South Australia | Adelaide Hills

Our Review

This is a partnership between the Pike family (of Clare Valley fame) and the Joyce family, related to Andrew Pike’s wife, Cathy. The Joyce family have been orchardists at Lenswood for over 100 years and also have extensive operations in the Riverland. Together with Andrew they have established a vineyard planted to sauvignon blanc (5.9ha), pinot noir (5.73ha), pinot gris (3.22ha), chardonnay (3.18ha) and semillon (0.47ha). The wines are made at the Pikes’ Clare Valley winery. Exports to the UK, China and other major markets.

About

Pike & Joyce is a proud partnership between two families who share a history, a love of the Adelaide Hills, a passion for great food and wine, and a determination to produce the finest wine possible from any given year. In 1998 the Joyce family, which has owned and managed Adelaide Hills orchards for five generations, teamed up with Clare Valley wine legends, the Pikes, to develop 25 hectares of prime grape growing land. The vineyards are some of the highest in the Adelaide Hills and that elevation, combined with gravelly loam soils and sloping aspects, provides the perfect terroir for the production of the highest quality cool climate wines. The Joyce’s long horticultural history, combined with the Pike’s vast viticultural experience, ensures the vines are managed meticulously. The vineyard is hand-pruned and the fruit hand-picked, before being cold stored to ensure maximum quality. It is then transported for vinification to Pikes’ award-winning Polish Hill River winery. The Pike’s winemaking style aims to strike the perfect balance of winemaking philosophy, combining traditional old-world techniques with a modern Australian approach to produce wines that reflect the variety, region and vintage, as well as our own interpretation on some classic European styles. Perhaps it is no surprise that Pike & Joyce wines have earned an enviable reputation as some of the Adelaide Hills’ finest.
