Byron and Harold The Protocol Shiraz 2020


Shiraz may take second place to Cabernet Sauvignon when it comes it the pantheon of Margaret River reds, but this suggest that it deserves better. Delicious stuff. Fermentation included a high percentage of whole berries with twice daily pumping over before transfer to barrel for malo and then maturation. Maroon/purple, there are notes of black cherries, raspberries, coffee beans, spices, mocha and licorice – perhaps more in the red fruit spectrum than the dark with some warm earth tones underneath. With juicy acidity and soft tannins, this is a wine which lingers beautifully and is a very fine example of what Shiraz can achieve in Margaret River. It should drink well for at least the next six years.
