A red wine variety which is thought to have originated from the Near East, specifically in Iran, although the contemporary version comes from France, principally from the high Rhône area.
Over the last few decades, this grape variety has been much in fashion and is grown in an endless number of countries, of which particular mention should be made of Australia where the Shiraz (the Anglo-Saxon way of writing its name) has become its principal identifying mark. It was authorised in Navarre in 2008, where there are just a few experimental plantations.
Wines made with Syrah are noted for their intense colour, full body, and fruit flavours and spicy aromas. This variety gives some very good results for aged wines, with barrel ageing whilst also expressing well in young wines. It is either made as a monovarietal or as a blend and makes a very good complement to the Garnacha.
