Syrah is a black grape variety that most commonly makes medium to full-bodied dry red wine. In this Syrah wine guide, we’ll discuss food pairings and tasting notes associated with the Syrah grape variety. As well as how climate plays a role in what Syrah will ultimately taste like. Syrah is also known as Shiraz, among several other varietal and regional names.
Syrah is a big-bodied, dry red wine that tends to shine its brightest on the opening palate. Not only is Syrah flavor-packed, but it’s also one of the darkest colored inky wines you can find. Deep purple in hue with not much translucency, Syrah’s violet and velvety elegance is backed by big fruit and crunchy spice. These flavors are typically bolder on the opening palate, with a softer texture, viscosity and spice leading the way out. Note that while these are the generalities of Syrah flavor, climate plays a critical role in determining the kind of flavor experienced with Syrah wines.
