Great depth of colour and a fragrant, aromatic nose reminiscent of cooler vintages in Bordeaux. Loads of complex characters with hints of cassis, graphite and vital black fruit flavours. The palate is medium to full in weight, claret-like with its grippy but integrated tannins ensuring a long finish. Excellent in its youth it will also reward with short term cellaring. Perfect with lamb dishes.

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 varietal Cabernet character and approachability.

After a rather low yielding 2018, the Limestone Coast was back on form after a relatively trouble-free vintage. A dry winter was followed by a cool spring and then a fiercely hot summer in most of South Australia. Limestone Coast faired better than other regions with a crop that exceeded that of the previous year and the quality was superb overall.

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 addiction.
