Shiraz

About Shiraz Grapes

Shiraz is a grape that has spread all over the world and there are very few countries that do not produce something with this wonderfully powerful variety. Shiraz, or Syrah as it’s called in its home of France, has fantastic fruit, body and acidity but lower tannins than Cabernet Sauvignon.

Taste profile

Occupying around 460,000 acres of the planet, Shiraz classically has flavours of blueberry, plum, and tobacco but the range of flavours can vary greatly dependent upon where it is grown.
France’s Northern Rhone, home to famous names like Cornas and Hermitage, produces some of the finest varietal Shiraz in the world and wines from here are medium to full bodied with flavours of plum, olive. leather and pepper discoverable.

You’ll find brilliant Shiraz in Australia’s Barossa Valley where there will be notes of blackberry, blueberry, baking spices and vanilla. In fact, this region is home to many of the world’s iconic wines made from Shiraz. Look out for Shiraz in blends too, as it forms an important component in many wines across the globe.
