Pikes The Dogwalk Cabernets is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.
Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the Clare Valley’s best varieties, and when it reaches its greatest potential, it rivals Riesling. Cabernet Franc is not as widely planted in the region, but blends extremely well with its relative, contributing an elegance and brightness to the wine.
Colour: Medium to deep red.
Aroma: Ripe blackcurrants, mulberry and crushed violet perfume. Oak playing a supporting role, providing hints of cedar and cigar box.
Palate: Medium to full bodied. The generous dark fruits and fine texture are classic Clare Cabernet. Blackcurrant and mulberry flavours are the stars of the show, with subtle influence of French Oak and fine Cabernet tannins playing support superbly. The well-balanced acidity and tannin structure of the wine leave a lasting impression.
