The Syrah Grape

The Syrah Grape

Offspring of two non-descript parents from the South East of France (Dureza and Mondeuse Blanche), Syrah is a relatively disease-resistant plant, and so productive that the grape variety’s yield has to be restrained to maintain quality.

Synonymous with Shiraz, which the Australians have adopted as their own, Syrah’s true home is the Northern Rhône. Wherever it’s grown, Syrah has a powerfully flavour and is full- bodied. Flavour notes vary depending on the climate and soils, typically black pepper in France and other moderate climates, with high levels of tannins. In hot climates, such as Barossa in Australia, the fruits are jammier, with chocolate notes and softer tannins.

The Northern Rhône is where the Syrah grape is king and France has more Syrah vines than any other country, despite it being the 6th most planted grape variety.
