Pike and Joyce Rapide Pinot Noir
Pike and Joyce's Rapide Pinot Noir aims to deliver bright fresh fruit for early drinking. We think it does just that! Attractive strawberry and dark cherry fruits with little interference from the oak. Although typically elegant, the palate has good depth of the delicious strawberry and cherry fruit mentioned above, fine tannins, balanced acidity and very subtle oak flavours. Finishes long and soft.

Grapes are hand harvested, chilled and transported to Pikes Vintners winery in the Clare Valley where the fruit is destemmed prior to pressing. SO2 is added to Pinot Noir prior to maceration and fermentation. Pinot Noir is matured in oak for 12 months prior to bottling – Pike & Joyce use only Burgundy-sourced premium quality French oak barrels which are topped up once a month during most of the year. Pinot Noir may have up two rackings prior to bottling.
