Summary: Take it to the Grave is a joint venture between Nicholas Crampton and South Australian 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 Noir takes on one of the wine world’s most entrenched rules – that it is impossible to make high quality, varietally expressive but affordable Pinot Noir.
Winemaking: Sourced from a number of vineyards within the Adelaide Hills across a number of micro climates – providing a good blend of expressive fruit, structure and high note aromatics. Primarily machine picked before vinification in a combination of small and large open fermenters. The majority of the blend is matured in stainless steel with a component aged in new and one year old French oak.
2016 Vintage: An outstanding vintage. Excellent, balanced and consistent conditions – warm but crucially not too warm, dry but not too dry, and finally cool Autumn nights that allowed for retention of natural acidity – have led to intensely flavoured and brilliantly balanced fruit with excellent freshness.
Tasting Note: Blood red in colour with a lifted and varietal nose of wild strawberries, ripe plums and cherries. The palate is rich and expressive with supple cherry and red berried fruit, a beautifully lush mouth-feel matched by fine tannins and soft acidity that provide structure and length.
