About The Wine
'Mates' is the only blend of varieties in the Izway lineup.
In the 2016 version, Craig Isbel blends Aglianico and Mataro into an earthy yet fresh-feeling red ready to drink immediately.
Aglianico is such a great variety for the Barossa and it's doing exceedingly well in the hands of Craig Isbel.
Craig thinks this might be the only blend of these two varieties in the world.
The perfect red to knock back at a BBQ with some mates.
About Izway Wines
The Izway wines were started a partnership between Brian Conway and Craig Isbel.
These two Barossa Valley diehards have been making outstanding Barossa red wines from great vineyards since 2003. Craig has now taken the solo reigns of the business since leaving his job as Head Winemaker at Barossa juggernaut, Torbreck in 2017.
They honour their families in the naming of each wine, characters like Bruce, Harold and Don populating the range.
These are quintessential Barossa Valley wines - deep, dark and brooding, powerful and polished. With one nod towards tradition and one towards the future, Barossa Valley lovers should be all over these wines.
