Tait Wines 2016 The Ball Buster 100% Basket Pressed Old Vines Red (Barossa Valley)

Scraping 16% alcohol, this Shiraz-dominant red blend is, unsurprisingly, ripe and luscious, but with some secondary notes that add interest. It opens with notes of plum cake with anise and ground white pepper, backed by iodine and bay leaf notes. The palate is big and warm, with muscular and high textural, sandpaper-like tannins that feel a little aggressive. Large helpings of plush fruit add a feeling of sweetness. A high octane, high alcohol wine that lives up to its name. Christina Pickard
