Pike & Joyce

South Australia | Adelaide Hills

James' 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 love of the Adelaide Hills, a passion for food and viticulture and a determination to produce only the finest wine.

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, gravelly loam soils and sloping aspects provide the perfect terroir for the production of quality cool climate wine grapes. Accordingly, the wines produced have a distinctive regional character.

The Joyce’s long horticultural history combined with the Pikes’ vast viticultural experience ensures the vines are managed meticulously, traditionally hand-pruned and hand-picked to ensure maximum quality, before the fruit is transported for vinification at Pikes’ award-winning Polish Hill River winery.

Andrew and Neil Pike strike the perfect balance of winemaking philosophy, combining traditional old-world techniques with a modern Australian approach to produce a style that reflects variety, region and vintage.

Perhaps it is no surprise that Pike & Joyce wines have earned a reputation as some of the Adelaide Hills’ finest.

Pike & Joyce is situated high in the hills, almost 600 metres above sea level. It’s just a 40-minute drive from the Adelaide CBD and boasts breathtaking 180-degree views.

It is far from your average cellar door and restaurant – here, Pike and Joyce has captured all the wonderful sights, sounds and tastes of the Hills in one amazing experience.
