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.

  • Les Closiers Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2010


    This wine was purchased in The Hague to augment the closure of the day spent in Amsterdam. It is about 80% Grenache and exudes the aroma of crushed red currant, cherry whips and Kirsch. A bit untamed on the palate but full of aforesaid red fruit and gentle tannin. Worthy. 89 points. Read More

    The palate delivers perfumed and luscious red fruit shrouded in barely perceptible fine tannins. Theres a surprising mineral note as well as some hints of wet earth and it finishes with a wonderful freshness. Read More

  • Jean-Luc Colombo Rose 2014


    With an impressive read on the French label, it sounded like this rose' was worth a go. Colour was a bit of a warning, as most rose's I enjoy are a light to deep pink with a boarderline red. Scent was light, a bit floral and also concerning but taste is what matters. On the pour, it seemed very peach. Peach? Okay, trying not to judge a wine... Read More

  • Rosé Rocks! By Cornerstone 2014


    Simple and fresh aromas of ripe watermelon and cherry. Round and soft in the mouth, this shows a bit of fat around the edges and a core of ripe cherry and strawberry flavors that make it approachable and clean while still having a lot of body to it. Read More
