Beechworth attracts the most artisanal winemakers, the region's rich mineral soils and parched, undulating terrains, breed wines of vigorous flavour, crystalline textures and boney savoury tannins.

The old pub remains but the surrounding land has been turned over to viticulture, planted to vine in the nineteen naughties, it produces a quality of wine that's reserved for the nation's most exclusive winelists.

The Pike & Joyce vineyards are amongst the highest in Adelaide Hills at five hundred metres above sea level, giving the wines excellent natural acidity. The steep sloping terrain reduces the risk of frost. Vines are all hand pruned and handpicked, the fruit is chilled overnight in the Joyce cool rooms, before being transported to Pike's Clare Valley winery for vinification. Traditional old world techniques and modern Australian winemaking are incorporated to produce a style which reflects the variety and region. The fruit is lightly crushed and destemmed prior to pressing and fermentation. A brisk bottling upon completion captures and preserves the lovely Pinot Gris fruit character and Adelaide Hills charm.
Medium to pale green hue. Subtle notes of yellow peach and nectarine, nashi pear and nutmeg along with a little of the river stone minerality for of Adelaide Hills Pinot Gris. Medium bodied palate showing the flavours of stone fruits over a gentle creaminess which contributes texture and length. Well balanced acidity maneuvers the wine away from finishing heavy or cloying.
