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:

  • My parents just finished renovating their basement, which now includes a huge wine area for my Dad's "collection."  He fancies himself a wine connoisseur, but although he does know a little about wine, he's not a serious collector, nor does he have a particularly sophisticated palate.  Anyway, he mentioned that now that he has a lot more room, h...

  • Is there really a difference between the words AROMA and bouquet?Recently I was told by a VERY OBNOXIOUS Portuguese self proclaimed wine conoussaier that a wine has aroma's until it is 1 year old, only after this bottling time we can refer to the wine smells as aroma? Is that correct ? Read More
