Shiraz/Syrah














Shiraz and Syrah are from the same red wine grape.  The reason there are two names for this grape is because in France it is known and grown as a Syrah; it is responsilbe for some of the Northern Rhone's big bold red wines.  In Australia and South Africa they call it Shiraz.  The Shiraz is the Australia's spicy, big hitting wine.  It is a deep-purple color grape and produces medium to full bodied wine.  Shiraz wines display firm tannins and the rich round flavors of black cherry, blackberry, plum, bell pepper, black pepper, clove, licorice, dark chocolate, and smoked meat.
