Izway Wines

About The Wine

The Rob and Les Shiraz is named for the grandfathers of the two lads behind Izway Wines.

As Brian says, there's a sentimental aspect to making this wine each year. Putting their ancestors on the label means they feel the need to seriously over deliver with the wine and improve it each and every year.

It's a good, honest Barossa Shiraz. All hearty and rich - just what you want when you reach for Shiraz from this famous region. The 2016 is right in the zone, set for drinking now or cellaring for a decade or even more.

About Izway

The Izway wines are 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. 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.

Additional Info

From The Producer

This wine is a dedication to all Grandparents and is named after two of ours – Robert and Leslie.

Although the 2016 Vintage will be considered one of the great harvests of the last 20 years, the growing conditions were anything but conventional. The conditions resulted in exceptional fruit created in shrewd and almost sagacious weather, where the season seemed dialed in to the specifics of each vineyard.

The 2016 Rob & Les is sourced from John, Barb and Andy Kalleske’s Koonunga Hillside Vineyard and their “Bruce Block” in the north of the Barossa Valley.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Black cherry and a big waft of black pepper. Grilled pepper steak, blackberry and coal with a lift of sweet oak married perfectly into the fruit. Black pepper theme continues through the finish. Bramble, fruit, a lick of creamy oak - yep - that's Barossa Shiraz alright. Unmistakable and done to a T. - Different Drop Wine Team

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts?

No our pricing is aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

No, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

Can I special order a wine you do not sell?

If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
