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 »

  • I've been enjoying this '07 Copain Brosseau Syrah for the past few nights waiting for it to open up. The palate has come around but the nose is shy roasted meat, soy and violets. It packs dark black fruit into the palate in a lean shell followed by chalk and fairly tart (some would think too tart) finish. Maybe I'll check on my next bottle aroun... Read More

  • Milbrandt Vineyards Syrah the Estates Clifton Hill Vineyard 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Dark blackberry notes and cinnamon spice on the nose. Richly fruited in the mouth, this has loads of rich black currant and blackberry fruit, chewy tannins, warm baking spice and a touch of charred herb towards the finish with some black pepper and a hint of licorice. Read More
