Reviews for 2005 Izway Mates

Wine Front - Wine Front, April 2006
60% Grenache (80 year old vines) 15% Mataro (30 year old vines) 25% Shiraz (5 year old vines). This wine never sees any oak - not even old oak. REVIEW: Fresh and fruity but long and stony too oodles of dry powdery... 60% Grenache (80 year old vines) 15% Mataro (30 year old vines) 25% Shiraz (5 year old vines). This wine never sees any oak - not even old oak. REVIEW: Fresh and fruity but long and stony too oodles of dry powdery minerally textured flavour taking over from the mid-palate onwards. Until then its spicy blackberried raw and aniseedy the end result a wine with more pristine dryness than sweetness. Remarkable quaffing this. Twiggy bitter Italianate finish - within the context that this is very ripe (indeed there's a burnt sugar flavour as it first hits your tongue). You rarely hear me say this of a full-bodied Barossan red wine but: this needs food.This wine actually belongs in the Mucho Yummo Wino review section. Value plus

James Halliday - James Halliday, March 2006
Bright red-purple; light to medium-bodied vibrantly fresh red berry fruits; good balance with minimal tannin and oak influences.
