About The Wine

Much-needed rain in spring, a hot, dry summer, and a cool March for vintage, the conditions were pretty perfect for making top end Barossa Shiraz, and the 2018 Izway Bruce Shiraz is proof enough.

Shows a rich, sinister darkness on the nose, full of black fruits and mocha. Concentrated dark chocolate, tar and licorice on the palate, which is nonetheless surprisingly elegant and slender, as the vintage retained some acidity and drive.

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.

Additional Info

From The Producer

A rich and textural beast. This wine is a perfect blend of vineyards from the North Western Ridge of the Barossa Valley.

In 2003 a single barrel called Bruce, held our entire first vintage. Named after Kathryn’s late father, Bruce is the most iconic and personally significant wine that we produce.

An unflinching return to the traditional Barossa Valley Bruce vineyards, the bold, plush palate, and dark, brooding aromatics of the 2018 Bruce are a definitive throwback to the early releases of this wine. Brash and unapologetically Barossan, it treads a fine line between brawn and elegance.

DDS review

The 2018 Bruce is a big Barossan with a silky touch. Godzilla in a gown. Looks fantastic now but would be outstanding in about five years. - DD Wine Crew

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 designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. 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 consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

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 02 8376 8775 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

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).
