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.

As with the first: Big black fruit, spice, some minerality, really nice mid-palate feel, full body and a long finish. A very tasty wine. We will get more of this in the near future.

  • Quivet Cellars Las Madres Vineyard Hulda Block Syrah 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Dark purple color. Sulphur funk takes a few minutes to dissipate. Spritz on the tip of the tongue. Lots of red fruit--strawberry, plum. Some black pepper and some earthiness mid-palate. Stiff tannin balanced, though, by acid. Pleasant finish. Read More

  • The USA has been starved of "REAL" Australian Shiraz, We built our name on Family wineries, Single Vineyard Estate Wines. Not these commodities. there are Great Australian wines available , just a little harder to find

  • Que Syrah, Syrah....A bold mouthful of mashed black fruit that dries out on the palate leaving a blanket of spiced wood to wrap around a forkful of rare venison...Nectar of the Gods....

  • I like the spiciness and boldness of Syrah. I haven't tasted many, but the majority were from California, Russian River Valley. I would like to try a French Syrah. Any recommendations on a rocky and floral wine>?
