Dark Star Tube
An occasion wine for a special occasion. The Dark Star by Inkwell is a decadent and luxurious Fortified wine. It embodies the inward concentration of a dying star as the name suggests. A top-notch night cap to say good night with. A very special gift to say thank you, to show your sympathy or simply I'm thinking of you.
Inkwell : Dark Star NV Solera Fortified Zinfadel 375ml : McLaren Vale, SA, Australia.
Inkwell releases single vineyard wines which express the "fingerprint of place" from its iconic Mclaren Vale vineyard winery. Run by husband and wife duo Dudley Brown and Irina Santiago-Brown, self confessed fanatics about their vines and wines and true advocates of sustainable farming practices. The Dark Star is a small special bottling of Fortified Zinfandel and the first commercially available bottling of their NV Solera Zin. A small amount was requested by Isa Bal, Head Sommelier at Heston Blumenthal’s Fat Duck to pair with the final dish of the final night of the Fat Duck’s Melbourne season. She called it on of Australia's "most unique wines". Apart from that one outing, this wine has never seen the light of day. Until now.

With his Cuvee Chocolate range he has pursued a long standing dream of creating Australia’s only artisan chocolate specifically crafted to compliment wine and creating the perfect wine companion. A bold blend with 70% of the beans coming from a single plantation nestled within the ancient rainforests of Peru. Strong impressions of red and tropical fruit in the front palate, followed by complex layers of natural acidity which make it appear considerably less sweet than a common 65% dark chocolate.
