About the Wine

Gaelic Cemetery is a side label from a family synonymous with the Clare Valley and Riesling in particular, the Pike family.

Neil Pike explains how the label centres around this one prime, low cropping, single vineyard in the Clare. Where he could easily have taken the fruit and blended it into the Pikes family label, he thought that this fruit deserved to be presented on its own. The wines are sensational value, the Rieslings in particular. T

his is the "entry level" Riesling but it seriously over-delivers. Just like Neil's own Rieslings under the Pikes label it manages such purity and flavour, and with near-perfect Riesling conditions in 2017 this is an absolute belter! For sheer value, this is one of the smartest Clare Rieslings around.

"Here’s a drink. Fine balance, great flavour, packed with lime and floral perfume. It has crunch and vigour, bursts through the mouth, finishes long, and leaves you wanting more. Super. Say no more." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

This wine comes from three different blocks on the vineyard and our intention is to make a wine in the modern Australian Riesling style - crisp, dry and fresh.

Pale green in appearance with typical Clare Valley Riesling citrus characters of lemon and lime on full display along with some attractive floral notes. The balanced acidity ensuring a bright, clean finish. Great with any seafood – try with blue swimmer crab linguine.

Blend : Riesling (100%)
