Shiraz and Syrah are one and the same, the former being the Aussie renaming of the French Syrah. Shiraz often denotes a fruitier style and ours certainly is a big old fruit bomb that shows off the grape’s best assets, without being too heavy.
It’s fruit-forward characteristics make it a perfect partner for some pretty big food flavours. Glass of wine with your late night kebab? Shiraz, here’s looking at you kid.
Geek fact: Shiraz was one of the original grape varieties brought into Australia, with some vineyards dating back to 1843, meaning the country has the world’s oldest Shiraz vines still in production.
