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.

    Wine review by Mr Dolce

  • MJet's report on a Las Madres syrah tempted me to go for another one from Las Madres, but at the last moment I went for another one of my favorite vineyards--Alder Springs. I love the delicate introduction of fruit that I get from this wine--blackberry, plum and, maybe, pomegraniite.  It suggests these fruity flavors.  It doesn't slap you in in ...

  • Bedrock Alder Springs Syrah 2013


    Oh, wow. A nice, light introduction of fruitblackberry, plum, maybe, even, pomegranate. Nice savoriness as the wine passes back. Noticeable, but very sedate tannin. Nice, lip-smacking acid gives it freshness. There will be no Day 2 report on this wine. ;-) Read More

  • Provence is one of the oldest wine producing regions in the world. While ... ... ... is a blend crafted of Syrah, Cinsault, Grenache, Mourvèdre, and Tibouren. The blending process is up to the discretion of the winemaker. Furthermore, even the process used to make rosé (direct pressing or maceration/bleeding) is up to each winemaker. However,... Read More

  • Last night we had this lovely 2013 Quivet Syrah-Las Madres Hulda Block, gave it 30-45 mins in the decanter. Midnight dark in the glass, excellent dark fruit nose, big blackcherry/blackberry, a bit of spice, not very complex, full body, good acidity balances the fruit, some tannin comes through on the long finish.  Read More

  • Hope Estate Family Vineyards the Ripper Shiraz Western Australia 2013


    Dense blackberry aromas with a bit of heat, fresh cinnamon spice, and cherry jam. Bold, buoyant and expressive in the mouth with an immediate pop of fruit, blackberry and dry cherry which slides into a rich, earthy mid palate that carries some dark tannin, preserved black olive and eucalyptus. Finishes with good length. Read More

  • Tahbilk Shiraz Nagambie Lakes 1860 Vines 1996


    I was advised that this wine had just gone past its peak when I purchased it recently. Indeed it has. Certainly a lot mellowed compared to younger Australian Shiraz, and no longer as bold. Instead, what presented were mature plummy fruits and that wee bit of soy acid as a result of age. Was still great though, and expect to last only till end of... Read More
