Description

"A splendid rosé, it is beautifully expressed showing strawberries and cream with zesty citrus and juicy stone fruit flavours, wonderfully complemented by youthful fruit intensity and silky texture. It is flavoursome and comforting with whispering sweetness and perfectly pitched acidity" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Nov 2017

Light in colour but big on aromatics. Lifted strawberry and redcurrants, clove spice and red florals. The palate is light on its feet and very fresh but packed full of flavour with the brisk acidity driving an exceptionally long finish. 

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.

2017 was a wetter winter leading into the growth phase for vintage. With good water levels, the trademark vine stress was reduced somewhat especially when combined with the two rain events throughout January and February. The harvest itself was a little later than usual yet full ripeness was achieved, and the results are really pleasing. Intensely flavoured berries with great complexity through a longer ripening period.

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.

Food Pairing: A great partner to many cuisines, we recommend pairing with stuffed Portobello mushrooms served on a seasonally fresh crisp summer salad for the perfect combination with this wines modern pale, dry and elegant style.
