Expert Reviews

"Wonderfully fruited and powerfully expressed, the wine is packed with gorgeous dark fruit flavours together with notes of warm spice, cocoa and cedar. It is plump and fleshy on the palate, delivering succulent fruit flavours and velvety mouthfeel, finishing persistent and delectable. At its best: now to 2024." Rated: 93 Points Source: Sam Kim, www.wineorbit.co.nz, June 2018.

Winery Tasting Notes

Vivid red / purple in colour with an expansive nose of blackberries, blood plums and chocolatey oak. The palate is opulent and inviting with dark plum and blackcurrant fruit flavours matched by dried herbs, cloves and subtle spicy oak. Fine-grained savoury tannins provide definition to the impressively long finish.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Take it to the Grave was created by Nicholas Crampton and winemaker Corey Ryan as a range of contemporary wines that explore the greatest challenges and rewards in winemaking. This starts with a Pinot Grigio from the Alpine region of Tumbarumba. The ultra-cool climate is truly winemaking on the edge but results in truly elegant wines with beautiful freshness. The Pinot Noir tackles the challenges of achieving this most demanding of varieties at an affordable price using a core of Adelaide Hills fruit. The Langhorne Creek / Barossa Valley Shiraz displays the unique richness and character that only truly old-vines can.

The fun and impactful label has resonated with a wide range of consumers, each finding their own meaning in the expression  “Take it to the Grave” although the outstanding wine quality, as show by gold medals and up to 92 point scores from the likes of James Halliday and Campbell Mattinson, have certainly helped get them to come back for more.
