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.

  • So today is a new day.  Started off with a 2-hour massage and then I went ... ... the 2015 Columbia Crest Syrah.  The wine guy in the wine department recommended the French wine, a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah.  I've had the Melot from Washington State before so it's a know good one ($12.99).  I think that French wine was around $22.  ...

  • Apsara Syrah las Madres Vineyard Whole Cluster 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Nice gentle introduction of red fruits. Minerality pops up mid-palate. Firm, but, certainly, not obtrusive tannin. Good balance. Medium-bodied. A very good wine that is not priced in the stratosphere. Read More
