Learn About Syrah/Shiraz

Syrah is grown throughout the Rhône Valley but is at its best in the north of the region where it produces the red wines of Hermitage and Côte Rotie. View our range.

Cultivated widely (as Shiraz) in the new world, it is especially successful in California and Australia where it is often paired with other varieties. In the northern Rhône, it makes wines that have firm tannins, good acidity, with spicy blackberry and dark fruit flavours which age well. In the southern hemisphere, the wines are gentle and pungent with less pronounced tannins.
