The Tait winery and vineyard are owned by brothers Bruno and Michael together with Bruno’s wife, Michelle. The boy’s father Giovanni Tait migrated to Australia from Italy in 1957. Being Italian, wine had to be in the blood. His skill was not winemaking, but cooperage, which the family had practiced for over 100 years in Italy. Giovanni’s skills as a cooper were in great demand. He was employed by B. Seppelt and Sons where he became active in the production and maturation of wine in casks, however, it was not until 1994 that the family purchased a vineyard in Lyndoch in the Barossa Valley. Like many of his contemporaries, Bruno Tait believes that “quality wine starts in the vineyard.” Low yielding vines and traditional winemaking techniques, including open fermenters, extended maceration and basket pressings, enable the Taits to produce their big, ball busting reds.
A blend composed of 77% Shiraz, 12% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Sauvignon which was aged in 3-5 year old American (90%) and French oak barrels (10%). Super saturated inky black colour with very deep black dark red hue. The nose displays aromas of ripe blackberry and dark chocolate followed by some dark plum and spice. The palate lives up to wines name delivering enormous weight and great fruit concentration. Mouthfilling rich ripe blackberry and liquorice flavours are followed by some dark plum, dark chocolate and spice. Voluptuous texture with velvet smooth tannins. Long ripe blackberry, dark chocolate, liquorice and spice aftertaste.
Drink over the next 3-4 years (2011-2015).
