Izway Bruce Shiraz 2019
This wine is a perfect blend of vineyards from the North-western Ridge the Barossa Valley and Northern Eden 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 Izway produce.
The wine opens quite shy and will benefit from a decant before use. Once the aromatics are revealed they are familiar for Bruce lovers, with coffee, cacao, star anise and vanilla all displayed vibrantly.
The palate is dense, dark and ripe, exquisitely structured with a depth and complexity that can be attributed to the addition of the Eden Valley vineyard. The fine grain tannin initially lurks in the background and then evolves into an integral part of the wine.
This Bruce is one for the cellar, with ideal drinking from 2026 to 2031. Decanting will reward the impatient.
