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.

  • Rusack Syrah Ballard Canyon Estate 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Light red fruit on entryplum, mostly. Savoriness, some earthiness, very moderate tannin and very moderate acid. An enjoyable, easy-to-drink wine. Definitely a drink now wine, not a candidate for taking up cellar space. Read More

  • Kirkland Signature Cotes du Rhone Villages 2016

    Snoothrank:

    Very pretty wine, plumish in color and nicely pure. When first opened the syrah was front and center with lots of blue and black fruit finishing with some acid and some noticable tannin. With air the grenache stepped forward and offered some cherry with a soft finish. This is the third vintage of this wine I've drank and if you enjoy cotes du rh... Read More
