Take it to the Grave Rose 2018

Pale and transparent crimson in colour with a subtle nose of red fruits and spice. The palate begins with a core of vibrant red berry and candied fruits, building with layers of complexity to an impressively long and dry finish. A thought provoking Rose that combines flavour and complexity within the modern pale, dry and elegant style.

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.

Winemaking: 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.

2018 Vintage: Simply outstanding.
