DESCRIPTION
  • The Assemblage SMG has been a successful blend for Pikes since 2001 and one of the unsung heroes of their range of red wines. Drink it now and over the next five years or so.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    TASTING NOTES

    Cool aromas of red and blue fruits with a touch of white pepper and graphite as well as some eastern spice nuances. Rich, ripe and plump palate with a core of blueberry, chocolate and cherry flavours. Soft, savoury tannins and good acid add structure add length to the wine. Fine tannins and well balanced acidity add to the overall structure and length.

  • REVIEWS

    'Approachable and all-round enjoyable red with red fruits, earthy notes and lighter tannins. Some gently meaty notes, too. A smooth, blue-fruited and glossy finish. Drink now.'
    88 Points - James Suckling

    'This supple, fruit-driven red will have widespread appeal. It tastes of plum, raspberry, anise and ground spice, a splash of mint doing the work of a tambourine to the main melody of flavours. Complexity isn't its strong suit but it's not too simple and has more-ishness written all over it.'

    91 Points - Campbell Mattinson, Wine Companion (2015 vintage)

    'Medium bodied, spicy and juicy, cherry and plum, raspberry jubes, with a slightly earthy and toasty flavour. Crunch of acidity and fine dusty tannin, warm bricks and spice on the finish. Good. Easy to enjoy. Likely better still with a couple of years bottle age.'
    90 Points - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front (2015 vintage)
