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 »

  • VV-Most excellent Friday night. Last night we had a 2013 Quivet Syrah and either the bottle or my palate was off. A little muted on the nose, muted fruit and then a lot of forest floor. We drank it over 5 hours and it did not get any better. The last bottle we had a few months back was much better.  Read More

    Layers of nuanced red and dark fruits, cherry and plum with a little dusty earth thrown. Gentle tannins and well balanced acidity allow the elegance of this grenache driven wine to shine. 92 points - drink or hold - Paul Read More
