Chalk Hill Luna Shiraz 2016
Cellaring: This wine is made for immediate consumption, however, will reward cellaring for 3-5 years.
Chalk Hill The Procrastinator
92 pts (Ray Jordan, The West Australian)
Bright dark berry fruit with some thick textural notes on the palate. Vibrant with silky fine tannins.
Cellaring: Careful cellaring for 5 years or more.
Pike & Joyce Chardonnay
2015 – The 2015 'Sirocco' is possibly one of the best Chardonnays we have produced from our Lenswood vineyard. Drink now or over the next 5-8 years. Typical Adelaide Hills white peach, grapefruit and cashew characters with hints of struck match, cream and mineral in the background.
Summary: The Adelaide Hills is one of the premier Chardonnay producing regions in Australia and this wine does no harm at all to that reputation. Drink now or over the next 5-8 years. Great with Chinese style Pork Belly or the humble roast chook.
Pike & Joyce Pinot Gris 2017
91 pts (James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion)
The palate is medium bodied possessing stone fruit mentioned above and some mineral/stony textures that gently wash over the mid palate providing length and interest. Balanced acidity ensures the wine does not finish fat or heavy.
Summary: The Adelaide Hills region has proven to be well suited to growing Pinot Gris successfully. This is the 12th release of the Pike & Joyce version and we think one of the best. It is still one of the best white wines to pair up with spicy Asian food. Drink now and the next 3-5 years.
Pike & Joyce Sparkling
Drink over the spring and summer months ahead. Great with all sorts of canapes or just for the sake of having a glass of nice fizz.
Pike & Joyce Rapide Pinot Noir 2017
Aroma: Bright strawberry, red cherry and raspberry fruits with just a hints of damp undergrowth and forest floor there in the mix too. Typical Pinot.
Palate: Although light in body, the palate has lovely depth of the red fruits mentioned above, fine tannins and balanced acidity. Lush & plush finish.
Pike & Joyce Vue Du Nord Pinot Noir 2016
Chalk Hill Moscato 2017
Aromatics: Lifted tropical fruit with floral notes.
Palate: A slight spritz on the palate provides an effervescent burst of bright tropical fruit. Nice crisp acid finishes off the luscious fruit driven palate.
Pike & Joyce Gruner Veltliner 2017
Aroma: Subtle, earthy aromas of root vegetables, crushed nettles and some peppery characters are evident – maybe some citrus notes in the mix too.
Palate: The palate is quite soft, almost creamy in texture with the nettle/pepper characters doing most of the talking here. It is light to medium bodied with quite crisp acidity and finishes pleasantly dry.
Summary: Pike & Joyces 5th release of this distinctive Austrian varietal and again it is an encouraging one. Drink now and over next 2-5 years. Try it with green peppercorn chicken - no problem to handle a little spice.
Geoff Merrill Henley SHIRAZ 2005 Limted Stock
The colour shows wonderful depth and intensity for its age. The aroma is generous and inviting and very characteristically McLaren Vale. Bright berry fruits marry well with the toasty French oak and myriad of aromas beginning to develop as the wine matures. The palate is full flavoured yet shows restraint. Fine powerful tannins come forward as the ripe fruit flavours subside revealing the distinctive and elegant structure beneath. Truly a wine to be savoured as time in the glass reveals more layers and hidden secrets. After approximately 15 months in French oak we do a series of tastings to first select the best batches of Shiraz from the vintage, then we re-sample and taste every individual barrel from the selected batches to make first the Henley Shiraz and then the Reserve Shiraz. Geoff Merrill and Scott Heidrich (Senior Winemaker) take part in the sensory evaluation of each barrel to determine which particular barrels make the Henley grade. Once the barrels are determined, the blend is carefully made in the cellar and refilled into the very best French oak barrels we have for further maturation.
Overall we regard 2005 as a very good vintage. Abundant winter rains ensured adequate soil moisture for the summer ripening period ahead. This meant very healthy vines with good canopies. The summer turned out to be reasonably mild, which meant optimal ripeness temperatures brought the harvest forward by about two weeks. Red wines from 2005 vintage typically show very good varietal characters with well balanced tannins and acid.

Geoff Merrill Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 (Under Cork)
Deep red with brick red hues.
The aroma is intense and complex displaying the beginnings of bottle development. It is strongly earthy and menthol with some licorice, chocolate and soy notes.
The palate is smooth and chocolaty with a ripe fruit warmth.
Very well integrated oak plus firm fruit tannins provides a fine, almost hidden underlying structure which slowly reveals itself on the finish.
Impeccably balanced acidity brings the wine together seamlessly and ensures longevity and a broad range of food matches. Medium to long term cellaring.
Geoff Merrill Reserve Shiraz 2010 (Under Cork)
The aroma really displays the best characteristics of this ripe vintage. It’s full of intense red berry fruit, chocolate, earth and leather.
The palate is voluptuous and seductive, initially appearing generous and inviting before revealing the serious structure beneath.
Extended maturation both in barrel and bottle before release has allowed the wine to gain some sophistication and grace from what was a very rich and robust vintage.
