Shiraz

News

The fruity red wine known as Shiraz put Australia on the world wine-making map. Shiraz is the Australian name for Syrah, a red grape varietal that’s grown most often in Australia, Washington State, California and the Rhone Valley of France. Australia provides particularly good conditions for growing Shiraz, or syrah, grapes — so it has become the most planted grape on the continent. Australian Shiraz wines tend to be lush and fruit-forward.
