Buy of the Week NZ

Grant Burge Barossa Ink Shiraz 2016, Barossa Valley, NZD $18.99

The wine lives up to its brand with an ink-like hue and syrupy intensity. A classic and traditional Barossa style with masses of plum, dark berry, liquorice and chocolate/mocha flavours. High alcohol, ripe fruit and American oak give the wine an almost luscious sweetness that could cloy after a few glasses. A real ‘crowd pleaser’ offering value at this price. (Screwcap)
