Shiraz is also known as Syrah is grown throughout the world. In the country of origin this wine is called Syrah but in Australia, South Africa, and Canada it is known as Shiraz. The name Shiraz became popular because of the Australian usage and the Australian wines. Shiraz is Australia's most popular and widely planted red wine grape. Shiraz is often used as a blending grape in red wines to help balance the weakness of other varieties. The Shiraz grape is dark almost black in color with a thick skin and produces deep violet almost black wines. Shiraz grapes ripen mid-season and require heat to fully ripen. If the grape even slightly over ripens it tends to lose varietal character. Shiraz wines are usually chilled to 64 degrees Fahrenheit and served in a large glass. Shiraz pairs great with bold foods. Grilled meats, richly flavored red meats, beef stew, wild game, meat lover's pizza, grilled vegetables, barbecue, lamb, sausages, black olives, dishes with lots of pepper, and dishes with pungent herbs are great food parings with Shiraz.
Shiraz wines are medium to full body exhibiting bouquets that are more spicy than fruity. Premium Shiraz wines tend to reach their peak after several years of bottle aging due to the high tannin content. Shiraz wines can also be enjoyed early for the smooth tannin structure with berry characteristics. Wines made from Shiraz produce a wide range of flavor notes depending on the climate and soils in which the grape was grown. The most common bouquets and flavors are blackberry, black cherry, black currant, plum, black pepper, bell pepper, grass, licorice, thyme, clove, sandal wood, bay leaf, and cedar. Shiraz wines processed / aged in light oak exhibit bouquets / flavors of coconut, vanilla, and sweet wood. When Shiraz wines are processed / aged in heavy oak they tend to have bouquets / flavors of oak, toast, smoke, and tar. Bottle aged Shiraz wines have bouquets / flavors of cedar, earth, cigar box, and leather. Climate and soil conditions impact Shiraz wines with bouquets / flavors ranging from must, truffle, civet, and earth.
