All about syrah / shiraz
What is syrah/shiraz wine?
Syrah, also known as shiraz, is a type of red wine. It’s a dark-colored wine that originated in France, but now many wine-growing regions of the world produce this variety. Syrah/shiraz wine is a full-bodied wine with the fragrance of black fruit and berries and a hint of peppery spice.
What are the flavor profiles of these wines?
When you first sip shiraz, a punch of flavors from a variety of fruits, including sweet blueberry and savory black olive, greets you. You're then left with a spicy aftertaste. This wine contains strong tannins, and winemakers often blend it with other grape varieties to give it a well-rounded flavor.
Featuring moderate to high alcohol content, syrah has wide-ranging flavors, including smoked meat and bacon with fruity and floral notes. Oak aging syrah laces it with a subtle flavor of vanilla and baking spice. Shiraz also has a flavor profile similar to syrah, encompassing notes of blackberry and blueberry with smoked meat, beef jerky and bacon. The high level of tannins in syrah makes it rich in antioxidants.
Food pairings with syrah/shiraz
Syrah's earthy notes of red and black fruits pair well with game meat, stews, veal and other meaty dishes. Boldly-flavored food brings out the complex flavor profile of this wine, and barbecued meats are also a great choice to pair with syrah. Shiraz, with its mildly sweet fruity nuances, pairs well with spiced meats. A dry rub featuring anise and clove among other spices enhances the lovely flavor of sweet shiraz.
