Tait Family Wines and a Family Tradition Meal

It's time to celebrate another #WorldWineTravel event and this month Lynn of Savor the Harvest is our host.  She has us exploring white wines from South Australia but I got my vines crossed and am giving you a South Australia RED wine.  My apologies but I promise you will find wonderful white wines from my colleagues below!

This group is focusing on Australian wines for 2022. In January I discussed wines from Western Australia.  February's post was on reds from Southern Australia.  Click the links to read more!

I chose a Tait Family Wine, "The Ball Buster" which is a red blend of 77% shiraz, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 8% Merlot.  This wine gets a lot of things right. This is a fruity, juicy wine that both my husband and I loved.  This is a basket-pressed wine.  It has a reasonable price point, too.  The color is a deep garnet.

We paired our family's recipe for Stuffed Cabbage Rolls. It was a perfect combination. The meaty goodness of the filling and the tender cabbage leaves are wonderful wrappers.  We didn't even serve a side with it and it was filling and good.  The juicy wine stood up beautifully to the tomato sauce.

  1. You made me nostalgic. My mother used to make cabbage rolls and I loved them. I can see how this would be a wonderful pairing!

  2. Ahhh, cabbage rolls. A regular at my Ohio home growing up. Great memories!
