More about Half Bottles of Syrah

Syrah in France or Shiraz in Australia deserves to be more popular.  We like them as full bodied alternatives to Cabernet.  Syrah is the grape of the Northern Rhone where it is peppery, spicy and rich with leather, herb and oak nuances.  Shiraz in Australia is completely different; here they are fruity (blackcurrant), concentrated and powerful with high alcohol levels. In between these two extremes is Shiraz from the Swartland area north west of Cape Town in South Africa; peppery, spicy and fruity. Half bottles of Syrah should be opened about half an hour before drinking to get the best out of the wine.
