Syrah and Shiraz wines are made in a variety of styles, from light and fruity to rich and full-bodied. Some of the most popular Syrahs come from the Rhône Valley in France. Shiraz wines are made all over the world, but Australia is perhaps the most well-known producer.
It's a wine with high tannin levels, which gives it a dry, astringent taste. Syrah is also known for its deep color, which can range from purple to almost black. And what's even more impressive is that this type of wine actually gets better with age – so if you have the patience to cellar it, you'll be rewarded with an even more complex flavor profile down the road.
Whether you call it Syrah or Shiraz, this delicious grape variety is sure to please your palate!

"Hi l am Wim, sommelier, and wine enthusiast just like you! My fellow sommeliers understand the importance of serving wine at the correct temperature. They know that if wine is too warm, it will lose its flavors and complexities, and if wine is served too cold, it will numb your taste buds. A few world renown sommeliers and myself will explain this further, and share some interesting (taste) case studies."
