Another term for Shiraz2.
- Although Syrah has some potential here, only a small percentage of producers seem to have a handle on it so far.
- In California and Washington (where the grape is gaining fast in popularity), some Syrahs lean toward the fleshy Australian style; others are leaner, more ‘French.’
- Wine makers now are crafting their Syrahs with fuller textures based in part around substantial alcohol levels (near 14%, occasionally over), and lower acid levels.
