Shop for Syrah (Shiraz)
Syrah, or Shiraz, is most popularly known these days as the benchmark grape of Australia's wine boom in the late 1990's. Indeed, you'll still find some of the world's best Syrah wines (and best wines, in general), such as the legendary Penfolds Grange, in Australia. But, Syrah's modern history begins and continues in France's Northern Rhône region, where it's the primary grape in blends from Cornas, Crozes-Hermitage, and other celebrated districts. You'll also find terrific Syrah wines from California, South Africa, Chile, and other regions.
Much like cabernet, Shiraz (Syrah) creates robust, deeply-colored wines that are rich and extraordinary. Often quite tannic and with a weighty mouthfeel, you'll want to pair Syrah wines with red meats like lamb and venison, or barbecued foods with a good char.
