Syrah

Parentage: Offspring of Dureza & Mondeuse Blanche
Aliases: Shiraz, Hermitage, Antourenein Noir, Candive, Marsanne Noir...
Grape Color: Black
Regions: Rhone (France), California AVAs, Australia
Type(s) of Wine the Grape Produces:

Syrah. Shiraz. Sirac. Schiras. Marsanne Noir. The names can go on endlessly to describe one of the most powerful red wine-producing grapes in the world.

The irony here is that Syrah’s origins could give Carmen Sandiego a run for her international wallet. Syrah’s deepest rooted history lies in the Rhone region of Southwestern France, as the wines that made this varietal famous were from hermitage, located in northern Rhone. The name “Shiraz,” however, gained popularity in Australia where this dark-skinned varietal has long been heavily planted. The birthplace of Syrah is still unknown, with many legends linking together both its aliases, suggesting origins in Iran, Rhone, and Australia.

Syrah is used primarily for producing strong red wines Read more »

    Snoothrank:

    This wine is from private stock produced in Langley BC Canada employing grapes ... wine, but with predominantly Syrah in the melange. Sweet plum and cola on the palate with a buttery, rich mouth feel. Finish is long and just slightly warm (15% alcohol). This is one of the best private bottling efforts I have tasted. Not available commercial... Read More

  • Too bad I will be having some dental surgery at that time.  NZ wineries are certainly on the agenda, and I might have joined just such an expedition had other events not unceremoniously intervened.  But teeth are a bit more important just now.  Enjoy your trip.Z. Read More

  • Que Syrah, Syrah....A bold mouthful of mashed black fruit that dries out on the palate leaving a blanket of spiced wood to wrap around a forkful of rare venison...Nectar of the Gods....

  • I like the spiciness and boldness of Syrah. I haven't tasted many, but the majority were from California, Russian River Valley. I would like to try a French Syrah. Any recommendations on a rocky and floral wine>?

  • How about the petit syrah's? Used to drink 1974 Paul Mason (?) by the case. Just incredible wine. My husband's Mom would ship it from CA to us in CT.
