About

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 2017 is right in the zone, set for drinking now or cellaring for a decade or even more.

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.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Rob and Les is on song this year. A cooler vintage clearly making more of a finessed style of Shiraz. Black cherry and a big waft of black pepper. Some lifted perfume too, more pretty than usual for this cuvee. 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. - 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.

The 2017 harvest will be broadly remembered as wet and cold, with more than double the average rainfall recorded in the 2016 calendar year. However, the rain seemed to obey the calendar and dry harvest conditions meant that potential disease pressures were easily managed, and patience was rewarded with wonderful, fragrant aromatics and juicy, clean, bright flavours.

The cool conditions contributed not only to pure fruit on the vine but long, slow and controlled fermentation in the winery. A stellar vintage that will be wedged between two of the best we have seen and one that should cement the Barossa as the most consistent region in Australia.

The 2017 Rob & Les is sourced from two vineyards; the Kalleske Hillside Vineyard and the Kalleske Bruce Vineyard, both located in the north of the Barossa Valley
