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 2016

    Snoothrank:

    Something of a volatile nose. Lots of red fruit on the tip of the tongue. Sadly, sweeter than I normally enjoy. When I hold the wine in my mouth for a few seconds, I get a stony flavor or sensation. This wine seems a little bit hot to me--not enough to really bother me, though. Read More

  • In preparation for our family gathering next week, I attended a Thanksgiving ... Monday night. Lots of Pinot, Syrah and jammy Zins were on the stage.  Perhaps I'm too predictable, but I always associate this holiday with bottles of tasty Pinot Noir. It's all I ever serve on the fourth Thursday of November. Smitten by this wine's approachabilit... Read More

  • I decided to open a bottle from a recent acquisition - the 2012 Garrison Creek Syrah.  Needless to say, it is most excellent.  I'm glad we got on their mailing list back in March when we were in Washington to taste wines and things of this nature.Of course, I had to do some work before opening a bottle.  I raked leaves, picked them up and then c...

  • 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>?
