Question of the week

THE QUESTION: Is it Syrah or Shiraz?

THE ANSWER: Believe it or not this is by far the question that I get the most. And to answer said question: Yes. Syrah and Shiraz are indeed the same grape, be it from the home of Syrah as we know it in the northern portion of the Rhône Valley in southeastern France, or from the new unofficial homes of Shiraz in Australia or Syrah in California. The term Shiraz is used in Australia the most, but also in South America, South Africa and sometimes in the United States as well.




Happy Wine Wednesday everyone!
