Pinot Grigio/Pinot Gris
Region: Adelaide Hills
Grape Variety: 100% Pinot Grigio
Winemaker: Nicholas Crampton
Summary: Take it to the Grave is a joint venture between Nicholas Crampton and wine grower Jim Zerella created to deliver interesting and rewarding wines whilst challenging a few established rules and preconceptions. The Take it to the Grave Pinot Grigio explores the secrets of high altitude viticulture.
Winemaking: Sourced from a single King Valley vineyard high in the North-East Victorian mountains at an altitude of 500m+. Hand harvested in the early morning to retain natural acidity. Whole bunched pressed, aiming to limit skin contact and using only free run and first press juice. Fermented in stainless steel with temperature control before maturation on lees for six months to build texture and complexity.
2021 Vintage: The 2021 Limestone Coast vintage was free of disease, drought, and smoke taint. Based on the mild summer, and the colour and aromas that were evident in the finished ferments, 2021
points to an exceptionally good vintage with lovely firm acidity in the whites and good fruit expression and
tannins across all reds, which at this early stage, will translate into wines that have excellent cellaring
Tasting Note: This Pinot Grigio is light straw in colour with a pale hue. The lifted aromas are characterised by citrus, green pear and hints of alpine spice. This is a mouth-filling wine with the palate exhibiting pear, white stone fruit and very subtle fresh cut herbs. The freshness of the acidity drives a very long palate weight and ensures it finishes crisp and fresh. Perfect with fresh seafood, chicken and pork dishes.
