Grant Burge Barossa Ink Shiraz. Or just known as Ink Shiraz these days. Big, dark, bold, full bodied, opulent red with lashings of dark, ripe fruits delivered with a whopping high alcohol 14.5% bang!
Warning – don’t spill on the carpet, they called it Ink for a reason!
The Burge crew describe this one as “An intensely dark and opulent wine from the heart of the Barossa, this Shiraz is a mouthful of bold flavours with a colour so deep that it’s almost ink. A distinctly different Shiraz, that will make a big impact.”
The first two releases (2016 and 2017) went gangbusters and received big ups in back to back annual Aussie Shiraz tastings by Cuisine magazine…
2016 vintage – 4 Stars & Best Buy
“Ink by name as it is inky in colour (intense purple), this is one is for the hedonists…The texture is velvet soft. It’s a wine that is a celebration of Barossa-ripened fruit. Easy to drink and easy on the wallet.”
2017 vintage – 5 Stars, Best Buy & No.2 Shiraz
“Beautifully composed and simply delicious. Ripe, toasty and spicy in all of the right proportions. The wonderfully concentrated mid-palate is very seductive and balanced with fine acidity and long silky tannins.”
And the good news is this latest 2018 vintage will leave you absolutely hooked yet again! With its moreish inky, syrupy goodness and lashings of rich, bold juicy fruit and luxuriously smooth tannins. It’s no wonder Ink Shiraz has reached cult like status!
Made by one of the big guns of the Barossa Valley – Grant Burge. They’re the guys behind some iconic Shiraz labels such as 5th Generation, Miamba and Filsell.
It’s big, bold Barossa at its best. You beauty.
