The Protocol Shiraz 2020
Deep red in colour with a purple hue.
Lifted aromatics of red fruits with white pepper and baking spice.
An elegant and balanced Shiraz. The fruit shows good concentration, sweet red fruits, and savoury spice. The oak adds layers of chocolate and mocha with soft round tannins that linger with good persistence.
Twenty-eight-day dry aged wagyu steak with pureed potatoes.
The 2020 vintage was warm and dry, which created challenging conditions for canopy management and irrigation programs. Our viticulture team should be rewarded for their attention to detail. The resultant wine exhibits the cool climate varietal characters expected from a Margaret River Shiraz.
