COONAWARRA BEAUTY. 4 STARS JAMES HALLIDAY
Take it to the Grave was created by Nicholas Crampton and winemaker Corey Ryan as a range of approachable, contemporary wines that explore the greatest challenges and rewards in winemaking.
Sourced from 20 year old vines from the Coonawarra, the wine is fragrant and aromatic, reminiscent of cooler vintages in Bordeaux. With loads of complex characters including classic cassis and blackberry, garden herb, pencil pine and rich mineral nuance. The palate is medium to full in weight, with grippy but integrated tannins that are driving a long finish. Excellent in it’s youth it will also reward with short term cellaring.
