Syrah is the 'old world' name for Shiraz - a noble variety producing dark, complex, long-lived wines with powerful, rich berry fruit. With the most famous Syrah's stemming from France's northern Rhone, thanks to a surge in popularity, it has been planted throughout South Africa, and California, with a wide range of expressions. Shiraz has been Australia's most widely planted red variety for 150 years and alongside good value everyday wines, produces some of the country's most expensive reds including Penfold's Grange.

The Syrah grape's genesis was Iran over 6500 years ago, brought to France, then the U.S. and Australia.
A seared Italian mushroom steak and a glass of spicy Syrah are perfect complements.
