If Crocodile Dundee went to France, would he ask for a glass of Syrah or Shiraz? Well, Syrah and Shiraz are the same types of wine. However, the French call it Syrah while Australians call it Shiraz.
Syrah is perfect for wine lovers that love big, bold wines. You can see by the Syrah in your glass that it’s a deeply purple-colored wine. The dark color is the reason why winemakers will use Syrah to blend in with other wines. It gives the wine a deeper purple hue.
In France, you are going to find Syrah has more herbaceous and earthy flavors. Most of the flavors hit your palate quickly then dissipate leaving behind a beautiful collection of spice notes.
