Description

  • Dry style
  • Green rockmelon
  • Citrus & pear
  • Refreshing acidity

"Youthfully fruited and immediately appealing, the wine shows green rockmelon, lime zest, apple and jasmine aromas, leading to a finely textured palate delivering bright fruit flavours backed by crisp acidity. Well rounded and easy to enjoy. At its best: now to 2024" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Oct 2021

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

The 2021 Limestone Coast vintage was free of disease, drought, and smoke taint. Based on the mild summer, and the colour and aromas that were evident in the finished ferments, 2021 points to an exceptionally good vintage with lovely firm acidity in the whites and good fruit expression and tannins across all reds, which at this early stage, will translate into wines that have excellent cellaring potential.

Sourced from select Limestone Coast vineyards. 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-altittude viticulture.

Food Pairing: Perfect with fresh seafood, chicken and pork dishes.
