Byron & Harold The Protocol Shiraz Margaret River 2022


This is a serious example of Margaret River Shiraz. It might not enjoy the celebrity of the region’s Cabernet but with wines like this, it will surely give it a nudge. Inky purple, this is quite gorgeous with black fruits, graphite, soy, beef stock, aniseed, coffee grinds, black cherries and a flick of white pepper. This is beautifully structured with a supple texture, good balance and silky tannins. There is serious length here. The wines from these guys seem to get better and better, every time I see them. Ten to fifteen years.

Variety: Red Wine, Shiraz
