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 Riesling razor like age-worthy structure with breath of flavour and drinkability.
Vineyards: Sourced from mostly older and well-established Riesling vines in the heart of the Clare Valley. Just to the north-west of the township.
Vintage: 2018 was a year of limited water resource compared to years prior. Much of Clare experienced close to half of what would normally be expected. With diligent water and vineyard work and canopy management the fruit for Take it to the Grave has delivered bright, robust fruit flavours whilst still maintaining the bracing acidity we would expect from the best of years. 2018 was a vintage to take extra care, but in doing so has turned out some exceptional wines.
Winemaking: Cool harvested to ensure freshness and vibrancy of the bright fruit flavours. The wine was pressed and the finest of the free-run juice was quickly transferred to stainless steel for fermentation and short maturation prior to bottling to ensure the lovely fruit character is protected.
Tasting Note: A lifted and aromatic nose of lemon and lime citrus, apple blossom and subtle clove spice. A delicious wine in it’s youth but will also reward with very careful cellaring.
