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.

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

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.
