Expert Reviews

94 Points - Joe Czerwinski - Wine AdvocateCapable of rivaling some of the 100% Grenache cuvées from the Southern Rhône, the 2017 Maurice Grenache comes from vineyards in Greenock and Seppeltsfield. Rose petals and herbs appear on the nose, accompanied by ripe cherries. Full-bodied but nearly weightless on the palate, it's supple and creamy-textured but fresh, beautifully capturing that elusive quality of Grenache. The finish is long and silky, adding hints of black tea. Bravo.

How's it taste?

Vibrant and aromatic with layers of plum, cherry and five spice skirting a core of plush and luxurious Grenache goodness. Dark and concentrated this wine is age worthy.

How was it made?

Grenache is one of the original varietals grown in the Barossa Valley, with vast plantings of bush vines still scattered across our region, many surviving here since the 1850’s. In our opinion Grenache is the variety that is most suited to the marginal soils and warm climate of the Barossa Valley; even more so than its more famous counterpart Shiraz. We have made it an aspiration to make the best Grenache wines we possibly can and to inspire people to drink more of this underrated varietal. We named this wine after “Maurice”, who is the brother of “Bruce”, and want people to consider Shiraz and Grenache to be brothers in the Barossa. Grenache; the unheralded legend of the Barossa.

2017 saw a continuation of the stellar run of great vintages in the Barossa Valley, and although each display striking differences, all harvests since 2012 will stand the test of time. High Winter and Spring rainfall as well as comparatively cold conditions through harvest guided the profiles of the 2017 wines. The summer was warm but not hot and there were no extended heat waves. The wines are defined by delicate, vibrant aromatics and elegant structures, particularly the Grenache while the Shiraz maintains its powerful persona. 

For the first time the 2017 Maurice is sourced from two vineyards, both located on the western ridge of the Barossa. The Materne Vineyard is planted on the famous clays of Greenock and the Radford Vineyard is in the equally revered region of Seppeltsfield. In our opinion Grenache is the variety that is most suited to the marginal soils and warm climate of the Barossa Valley; even more so than its more famous counterpart Shiraz. We have made it an aspiration to make the best Grenache wines we possibly can and to inspire people to drink more of this underrated varietal.

Who made it?

Izway wines was conceived on a handshake between two Aussie wine makers in a chateau in Beaujolais. Brian Conway and Craig Isbel met during vintage at Chateau de Bluizard in 2002 and after many nights drinking pastis they decided to start their own winery in the Barossa Valley.

I love experimenting with wines and encourage our Wine Collective members to try something different all the time. It’s amazing how the same grape variety from 2 different regions made by 2 different wine makers can taste so different. Some wines can be enjoyed on their own while others are better with food. If we all liked the same thing we’d be pretty boring.
