France and Australia are the two major countries producing syrah (or shiraz). But the grape is grown in many countries around the world. Does the character change depending on where the grapes grow? Absolutely. Compare shiraz from Australia with syrah from the Northern Rhône Valley. The differences will be significant. But you will probably find that they have some features in common.
We give you a suggestion for a wine tasting to illustrate the characteristic in Britt’s article on BKWine Magazine: Learn the taste of syrah.
