Summary: Take it to the Grave was created to deliver interesting and rewarding wines whilst challenging a few established rules and preconceptions. The Take it to the Grave Rose displays the insight and attention to detail required to seize exactly the right moment to create pale and dry Rose.
Winemaking: Sourced from a number of established vineyards on the eastern slopes of the Barossa Valley, primarily in the light pass sub-district. Completely de-stemmed with a short maceration (a few hours) sufficient to impart colour and texture. Following a soft pressing, the juice is given a cool fermentation in stainless steel and allowed to ferment close to dry. Maturation on lees in stainless steel adds texture and malolactic fermentation is prevented to ensure vibrancy.
2020 Vintage: 2020 had its challenges with a dry start and only a small portion of rain and with much of the country suffering drought conditions. The warm dry spell continued in December with some extreme hot temperature days recorded. It was a late ripening year and yields were down but despite the challenges it will be another excellent vintage across South Australia.
Tasting Note: Blushing pale in colour with salmon hues. On the nose, there’s vibrant strawberry and other red fruits as well as notes of vanilla and rose petal florals. The palate is light and very fresh but packed full of flavour with the brisk and crunchy acidity driving an exceptionally long yet dry finish. A great partner to spicy food. Serve chilled.
