Take it to the Grave Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

A Cab Sauv that is rich flavours you'd expect but approachability that is rare. Fine grained tannins, ripe fruits and smooth structure are central to this drop. Expansive flavours of dark berries and forest leaf follow and rich currant and cassis finish. 

Alcohol: 13.5%

Take it to the Grave is a joint venture between Nicholas Crampton and South Australian winemaker Corey Ryan created to deliver interesting and rewarding wines whilst challenging a few established rules and preconceptions. The Take it to the Grave Cabernet Sauvignon attempts the ultimate challenge of achieving both true varietal Cabernet character and approachability.

Vineyards: Sourced from a selection of mature vineyards (20 years old) planted on red Terra Rossa soils of Coonawarra (20 years plus).

Winemaking: The fruit is partially hand-harvested before de-stemming and cool fermentation in small two tonne open fermenters with regular hand plunging. Matured in seasoned French oak (20% new French) for six months before bottling with minimal filtration and sulphur addition.
