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 »

  • Halcon Esquisto Yorkville Highlands 2014

    Snoothrank:

    More red than blue in color. Bright tart nosesome earthiness. Initial impression belies the nose. Candied berry fruit on the tip of the tonguecherry. As the wine passes back under the palate I get more earthiness and tartness, and the wine acquires sophistication and complexity. It does seem a bit hot, and Im OK with that. As my taste buds...

  • Since I didn't drink any wine yesterday we made up for it today: Way ... one. The 2012 Bedrock Syrah was my wine and it did not disappoint! Excellent dark ruby color with a strong black fruit nose. Black/blue fruit, with some spiciness/pepper, a touch of smoke and a nice long finish.&nbs Read More
