The second wine is ‘selected off the press, looking for a certain texture, typically more de-stemmed rather than whole bunch’, says winemaker Craig Isbel. From a single vineyard, around one hectare of land under vine in Seppeltsfield. This is a cracker. Very different to the 2013 and 2015 releases of the same.
A wild perfume of red berries, briar, fennel, undergrowth, old campfire. Really quite compelling. Just on medium weight, serious ‘pinosity’, if that’s a thing, light, fine, silken flow, slender grip of tannin dips into savouriness and yet the wine finds succulence in pure, red berry and rose water fruit character. Sheesh, this is fine grenache. - Mike Bennie

Craig and Jason started their wine journey together as two mates with the same idea - handmade Barossa Shiraz. They produced this idea under the Izway label and have been doing successfully for over a decade now. The Izway style is rich, muscular, concentrated, Barossa wines that much of Australia has come to love.

The Agathist label from these winemaking gurus is quite the contrary. Restrained, pretty and fine expressions of Grenache. Manipulations are kept to a minimum and analysis of the wine during the process is never conducted. Clean, pure expressions made nature and formed by the palate, not in the lab.

We urge both lovers and haters of Barossa Valley wines to spread your wine wings and embrace these new Australian styles of warm climate wine. We all need to be drinking more of them.
