  • Urth Riesling
$35.00

Winemaker: Grant Dickson & Steve Baraglia

Any lover of Australian Riesling holds the Clare Valley in the highest regard and a name that is synonymous with Clare Valley Riesling is Pikes. We were extremely honoured to work with Neil Pike a great friend of ours to establish Urth, a truly inspired wine showcasing the best of Clare Valley Riesling. Since our 2020 release we have been equally thrilled to continue the winemaking legacy under the immensely talented Steve Baraglia; chief winemaker at Pikes and his own brand, Naked Run Wines.

Urth Riesling is a premium micro-release made with half the fruit fermented in Stainless Steel tank using neutral added yeast and the other half wild-fermented in barrel, while enjoying texture-enhancing lees contact. The wine is deliciously moreish, slippery, limey and long.

Grown on slate-based soils in Polish Hill River, Clare Valley.
