Description

"A gorgeous dry style; the delicately lifted bouquet shows Gala apple, strawberry, nectarine and spice aromas, followed by a juicy palate that is elegantly weighted and finely textured. Restrained and elegant, this is lovely drinking" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Feb 2019

Pale in colour with salmon and raspberry hues. Lifted strawberry and redcurrants, vanilla, clove and rose petal 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. A great partner to many cuisines.

The winter of 2017 was very mild and without any rain at all until the month of June with soils replenished for the pending growing season. The mild conditions continued through Spring and Summer with very little rain but also without significant heat periods. The ripening was even throughout most of the Barossa delivering very high quality with bright fruit flavours and good natural acidity.

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.

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.
