Tait Aussie wines!

Year after year, Tait produces amazing 90+ point rated wines!

2017 Tait The Ball Buster Proprietary Red..$19.99
Made in the same full-on style that proprietor Bruno Tait has been pursuing since its first vintage in 2001, Tait's 2017 The Ball Buster Proprietary Red is a blend of 77% Shiraz, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Merlot. Mint and baking spices lead the way, backed by a big mouthful of blackberries and black cherries. Full-bodied yet supple, it's spicy and rich, with lingering notes of mixed berries and spice on the finish. Despite weighing in at 15.9% alcohol on the label, it doesn't seem hot or overripe—an achievement in itself, but past vertical tastings suggest that this wine can develop nicely for a decade or more.
Rated 90/100 The Wine Advocate
Luscious, with juicy, fleshy and perfectly ripe black cherry, plum and raspberry flavors, showing a touch of black walnut liqueur, cream soda and milk chocolate on a smooth, velvety frame. Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2031. 6,300 cases made, 6,300 cases imported. 
Rated 90/100 The Wine Spectator

2019 Tait The Border Crossing Shiraz....$19.99
The 2019 Border Crossing has scented notes of blueberry intermingled with fresh summer berry and sweet vanillin oak. The palate has a soft, velvety, rich clean structure, balanced fruit, persistent length.
Rated 91/100 Vinous Media
