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.

  • Prestige du President 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Has the best of Italian character with French temperament. This wine opens nicely, so open it several hours before drinking. Nice with nibbles or a meal, or on its own. Long orchard fruit finish--the nose is a bit Merlot like (which I thought odd). It us a lush wine but not sticky or plummy (which I dislike). 50 % Niellucciu grapes which are ev... Read More

  • As an aside, it was really cool to see Paul Gordon of Halcon link my report to his Facebook page, which got tons of views. I normally assume our reports/writings on Snooth don't leave Snooth but we've seen things get wired to Facebook from this board. Read More

  • Jacob's Creek Double Barrel Shiraz 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Ruby/Purple coloration and with gorgeous legs, this has a rich, vibrant look that showcases the goodness to come! Aromas of whisky, toasty vanilla, dark chocolate, black coffee hints and deep, ripe berries. The flavors follow suit with added spicy zest and the mouthfeel is of velvety cream, slight booziness and warm richness. Awesome!! Read More
