The Wine

Winemaker's Notes
  • Barossa Valley Shiraz- densely flavored, primary fruit driven, with generous use of American oak.
  • Rich, voluptuous Shiraz with layers of intense flavor.
  • The Protagonist employs some restraint which gives it a seam of elegance, belying the power of the fruit. It’s what we believe the Barossa does best- power with elegance- a style of wine that has become synonymous with Australia and captivated so many around the world.
