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.

  • A small impromptu get together to celebrate the end of my radiation therapy. ... by all.Definitely wanted a syrah tonight so I dragged this out.  Good idea - blueberries, meaty tones, pepper, sage and medium chewy tannins with bright acidity.  Drinking above it's price point for sure and confirms my faith in Melville Estate offerings.&nbs Read More

  • Ogier Chateauneuf-du-Pape Galets Roules 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This Ogier Chateauneuf-du-Pape is wonderful; perhaps the "rolled pebbles" are the answer. In any case, this well-priced wine is redolent of strawberries (yes, somewhat like a deep Burgundy), smooth and food friendly; ready to roll, deep and finishing with the headiness we have come to expect from this region. 89-90.

  • Or Santa Lucia Lowlands, as Josh Jensen calls it.  You sit in his winery ... of 2010 Jemrose Cardiac Hill Syrah.  I got those on sale at $25 per and wish I had more, just one left.  This was hitting stride in a huge way.  Meaty, savory, but lots of fruit.  Tannins had receded enough that they didn't step on the spice.  Mint-scented basmati ric...

  • 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>?
