Izway wines was conceived on a handshake between two Aussie wine makers in a château in Beaujolais. Brian Conway and Craig Isbel met during vintage at Château de Bluizard in 2002 and after many nights drinking pastis they decided to start their own winery in the Barossa Valley. Their wine making is minimalistic to put it mildly and based on old world, hands on techniques.
‘Bruce’ Shiraz was the first wine ever made by Izway in 2003 with only 1 barrel produced. The 2009 Bruce is dark and moody and perfectly represents the harvest conditions. Herbal and leafy notes combine with rosemary roasted lamb and whole bunch fermentation. The brackish palate is complex and intriguing; salted dark chocolate and liquorice emerges as the wine opens up.
A dark and powerful wine that is pure Barossa. Only 575 cases produced.
