Winemaker Notes

Deep black purple with intense aromas of blackcurrent, stewed plums, cherry, and chocolate. On the palate, full bodied with flavors of berries with a sweet long lasting finish.

Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
How does one classify a red blend that includes Bordeaux and Rhône varietals? The easy answer: A New World red, but with further evaluation, one can just say that this is fine tasting red wine, no matter where the grapes originated. Just order up a succulent, medium rare rib-eye of beef and all will be good. Medium to deep ruby color; fine and pleasing ripe fruit aroma, fine depth; full bodied, packed and layered on the palate; dry, medium acidity, good balance; ripe fruit, some smoke and wood in the flavors; medium finish. (Tasted: January 12, 2016, San Francisco, CA)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A blend of 78% Shiraz, 12% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep garnet-purple colored 2012 The Ball Buster has a pronounced nose of creme de cassis, mocha and dried plums with underlying hints of yeast extract and licorice. Rich, expressive and well-balanced, this full-bodied wine is bursting with black fruit flavor and velvety textured goodness. It finishes with great persistence

Tait Winery Video

Tait Wines is a family owned winery located in the famous Barossa Valley, in South Australia. The Tait name has been involved in the wine industry for more than 100 years, practising the art of cooperage. Tait Wines is continuing this involvement by producing premium quality wines.

The inspiration behind Tait Wines was Giovanni Tait (1927-1997). Giovanni Tait migrated to Australia from Italy in 1957 to take up work as a cooper in the Barossa. His high skill and craftsmanship in his chosen trade led him to B Seppelts and Sons where he took an active role in the production and maturation of wine in oak casks. He learnt cooperage from his father and grandfather before migrating to Australia.

It was not until his sons grew older that his dream came to reality. With his sons, he founded a small winery called Tait Wines. His vision for Tait Wines was to be a traditional winery using all the old winemaking methods to produce hand crafted wines that were powerful in depth, flavour and taste. Each year, the family acknowledges their fathers vision by dedicating the estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon in his honor. This wine reflects all of Giovanni's qualities of age, depth of character and full of life.

Now Bruno with wife Michelle and brother Michael continue to produce premium boutique wines.
