Description

  • Fresh apple
  • Lime peal
  • Floral notes
  • Crisp acidty

"Bright, youthful and elegantly fragrant, the bouquet shows grapefruit, fresh apple, lime peel and floral characters. The palate is equally charming with bright fruit intensity and fine texture, brilliantly supported by crisp acidity, finishing long and mouth-watering" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Feb 2019

This Pinot Grigio is light straw in colour with a distinct pale hue. The lifted aromas are characterised by citrus, green pear and hints of spice. This is a mouth-filling wine with the palate displaying typical pear, white stone fruit and very subtle fresh cut herbs. The freshness of the acidity drives a very long finish and ensures it finishes crisp and fresh.

2019 in the King Valley started off well. There was plenty of beneficial winter rain that ensured the region was lush and green at budburst. A hot Summer followed but plenty of moisture in the soil meant for even ripening. The quality at harvesting was excellent although quicker than normal ripening meant for a rounder plusher style of Grigio.

Sourced from a single King Valley vineyard high in the North-East Victorian mountains at an altitude of 500m+. Hand harvested in the early morning to retain natural acidity. Whole bunched pressed, aiming to limit skin contact and using only free run and first press juice. Fermented in stainless steel with temperature control before maturation on lees for six months to build texture and complexity.

Take it to the Grave is a joint venture between Nicholas Crampton and 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 Grigio explores the secrets of high-altitude viticulture.

Food Pairing: This will partner very well with fresh seafood, chicken and pork dishes.
