Wine in a Can
Region: 100% Langhorne Creek
Grape Variety: 100% Shiraz
Winemaker: Corey Ryan
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 Shiraz takes on the mysteries and individual personalities of old-vine vineyards.
Vineyards: Sourced from a selection of mature, dry-grown vineyards in Langhorne Creek managed by Jim Zerella delivering intensity, length and structure.
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.
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: In the glass it’s coloured purple with a dense and dark body. A generous and very aromatic Shiraz showing purple berry fruits, dark chocolate and integrated spices. The palate shows ample weight and evenness whilst the fine tannins and integrated acidity drive persistence on the long finish. Perfect with roast lamb and a rich,creamy potato gratin.
