Take it to the Grave Pinot Noir 2023


Great value Pinot, the ‘Take it to the Grave’ label is a collaboration between Nicholas Cramption from Fourth Wave and South Aussie grower, Jim Zerella. The fruit comes from a range of sites within the Limestone Coast region. Maturation is in a combination of stainless steel and French oak of varying ages, including a portion of it new. A soft ruby colour, this is an earthy, savoury, briary style with notes of coffee grinds, red fruits, undergrowth, warm earth and cherries. It doesn’t take long for those cherries to morph into appealing sour cherry notes. A wine of medium length and good firm tannins, it can be enjoyed any time over the next four to six years.
