Wine glossary


Syrah is at home in the south of France, in the wine-growing region of the Rhône valley, from where it then travelled the globe, arriving in Australia, where it is called Shiraz. The red wine variety became an officially classified Austrian quality grape variety in 2001. The wines display intensive and complex aromas of herbaceous elements, such as herbs, ivy and eucalyptus, along with pepper-pod spice, making them a perfect choice for maturation in small oak barrels with long-term aging potential.
