Shiraz

Shiraz and Syrah are one and the same grape. The name Shiraz became popular for this grape variety in Australia, where it has long been established as one of the most widely grown varieties, from strongholds in regions like Barossa to cooler areas like Heatcote or the Yarra Valley. Syrah is grown in many countries and is primarily used to produce powerful red wines, which enjoy great popularity in the marketplace, relatively often under the synonym Shiraz. Syrah is used both for varietal wines and in blended wines, where it can be both the major and minor component. It is called Syrah in its country of origin, France, as well as in the rest of Europe, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, and most of the United States. The name Shiraz for this grape variety is also commonly used in South Africa and Canada.
