Tait The Wild Ride 2014

90 pts The Wine Advocate (LPB)

Tasting Notes

Full-bodied, rather weighty wine, but one that stays within normal bounds. Black cherry fruit is tinged with mocha and baking spices, ending in a dusting of soft tannins.


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

90 pts The Wine Advocate (LPB)
Blended of 48% Shiraz, 42% Grenache and 10% Mataro, the 2014 The Wild Ride has a medium garnet color and perfumed nose of potpourri, baking spices and raspberry leaves over a core of kirsch and mulberries. Medium-bodied, it delivers tons of spicy red berry preserves flavors with soft, plush tannins and appealing freshness.



Winemaker Notes

All grapes are picked when physiologically ripe to obtain peak ripeness in terms of sugar and flavor. The grapes are de-stemmed into fermenters, pH is adjusted and fermentation takes place over 7-10 days at a temperature of approx 24 degrees centigrade. Plunging and or pumping over takes place 3 times a day. The wine is then pressed using a Basket Press. Juice is then transferred to tank or Barrel to undergo Malo-lactic fermentation. Each batch is kept separate to determine on a year by year basis the quality of the fruit from that vineyard. All wine is racked and returned to barrel 2 to 3 times during the 12 month period to ensure a clean wine that does not need any fining or filtration.
