Shiraz and Syrah Wine

Shiraz and Syrah are two names that refer to the same grape varietal, known for producing bold and full-bodied red wines. Shiraz is the term commonly used in Australia and South Africa, while Syrah is the name used in other regions, such as France, the United States, New Zealand and many other wine-producing countries.

Shiraz/Syrah wines are often characterized by their dark fruit flavors of blackberry, plum, and black cherry, along with spicy notes of black pepper, clove, and sometimes a hint of smokiness. These wines can be rich and powerful, with firm tannins and a long, lingering finish. Shiraz/Syrah is often paired with hearty meat dishes, such as grilled steak, lamb, or game, and is favored by wine enthusiasts who appreciate robust and complex red wines with a touch of spice and pepper.
