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.

  • I recall Jaffurs Syrah being very drinkable on or near release.Based on my first experience with this one, Jon, I am inclined to agree.  Viognier is, possibly, Peggy's least favorite wine.  She gets overwhelmed by the floweriness in most varietal bottlings.  If there is just a little mixed in with, say, Marsanne and Roussanne, she's usually OK w...

  • 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>?

  • How about the petit syrah's? Used to drink 1974 Paul Mason (?) by the case. Just incredible wine. My husband's Mom would ship it from CA to us in CT.
