Summary: Take it to the Grave is a joint venture between Nicholas Crampton and South Australian winemaker Corey Ryan created to deliver interesting and rewarding wines whilst challenging a few established rules and preconceptions. The Take it to the Grave Cabernet Sauvignon attempts the ultimate challenge of achieving both true varietal Cabernet character and approachability.
Vineyards: Sourced from a selection of mature vineyards (20 years old) planted on red Terra Rossa soils of Coonawarra (20 years plus).
Winemaking: The fruit is partially hand-harvested before de-stemming and cool fermentation in small two tonne open fermenters with regular hand plunging. Matured in seasoned French oak (20% new French) for six months before bottling with minimal filtration and sulphur addition.
Vintage 2020: A vintage that could be charcterised by a small amount of high quality fruit. The season
started with abundant rain and the region was lucky not to be touched by the bushfires that hit other parts of South Australia. Yields were down due to a cool Spring but the fruit was outstanding: small berries that were concentrated with good tannins.
Tasting Note: Superb dense colour and a fragrant, aromatic nose that personifies Coonawarra. Loads of complexing characters with black fruits graphite and vital spicy, oak. The palate is medium to full bodied and almost claret like with its grippy but integrated tannins ensuring a long finish. Drinking well now, it will also reward with short term cellaring. Perfect with lamb dishes.
