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 premium Adelaide Hills vineyards, fruit for this Pinot Grigio was hand harvested in the early morning to protect fruit aromatics and retain natural acidity. Once in the winery the fruit was 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.
2023 Vintage: The winter and spring prior to the 2023 vintage was generally a little wetter and cooler than what is usual, delaying the start of vintage and meaning some extra care was required through the growing period. Whilst the vintage was indeed later than usual, there were some really beautiful parcels of fruit that benefited from being grown in sites where the slower ripening simply enabled flavour ripeness to be achieved with character & balance.
Tasting Note: This Pinot Grigio is light straw in colour with a pale hue. The lifted aromas are characterised by citrus, green pear and citrus blossom. 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.
