The Barossa Ink Cabernet Sauvignon is intensely deep red with purple hues. The bouquet is rich with blackcurrant, mint and dark chocolate. The textural palate has fine tannins, and excellent persistence with intense chocolate and berry flavours. A deeply coloured wine with great depth and varietal definition.

Further intensified with rich, natural colour sourced from grapes, the winemaking team carefully blend this vibrant, flavour packed parcels of premium Barossa wine to create a Cabernet Sauvignon so bold and dark in colour, its almost ink.

Barossa Ink is the product of a challenge set down by the Grant Burge winemaking team to come up with the most vibrant and impactful wines possible. The result is an intense and opulent wine from the heart of the Barossa, with a colour so dark that it’s almost ink.

Very good

Terrific “jammy” red. Great value for money, the Cab Sav was a real surprise as well. Let’s hope that the next season batch retains all the qualities.

Very smooth wine. Tasty. Not an overpowering flavor, but also no bitter aftertaste.

Ants - 25/09/2020

great go to red

Allan - 17/09/2020

Great drinking and value. Would definitely buy again. Shame the same can't be said for the "Ink" Shiraz.

Marcus - 09/06/2020

We love Ink Shiraz but think this may even be better

John - 06/06/2020

A nice smooth Shiraz. Excellent value for the price.

Great product at a good price. Delivery was exceptional. Thanks again

Steve - 29/04/2020

Certainly makes a statement, it is different and bold Cab Sav. We like it. Thank you Grant Burge

Gary - 22/04/2020

if it was 2 dollars less - it would be my wine of the year, at 17 a bottle it is still best in class so far in 2020

David - 21/04/2020

Lots of fruit. Smooth finish.

Melody - 13/04/2020

Earthy spicy with bold flavours

Encourages me to enjoy another drink. Smooth and delicious.

Marg - 02/12/2019

Good if you're looking for a heavy Cabernet Sauvignon, just a bit heavy for us. Not a favourite.

Lesley - 11/05/2020

very nice but not as good as the Shiraz
