On Robert Oster’s shop website Barossa Grape is described as follows:  Flows on like a Cab Sauv, dries on like a light Shiraz with excellent shading” 

I enjoy this ink although in some pens it looks boring. In order to fully enjoy it – given that you like such hues – broader or really wet nib would help. In old Waterman
