Home of Syrah

Syrah reigns supreme in the vineyards of the northern Rhône, where it exemplifies exceptional quality and robust characteristics. Picture yourself wandering through the sun-drenched vineyards of France, where Syrah grapes thrive in the warm Mediterranean climate. This grape variety exudes elegance and sophistication. A glass of Syrah wine reveals a symphony of aromas, with dark fruits like blackberries and plums harmonising gracefully with hints of pepper and spices. Each sip offers a velvety texture, balanced acidity, and refined tannins. Syrah embodies pure grace and refinement.


Now let’s head over to Australia, where the excitement begins. In the land down under, Syrah transforms into Shiraz, and it certainly becomes lively! Shiraz is the life of the party, bold, spicy, and bursting with flavours. Imagine yourself sipping on Shiraz and experiencing a burst of juicy berries, a touch of chocolate, and even a hint of mint. It’s a thrilling ride for your taste buds, filled with excitement and adventure. Shiraz is all about standing out and leaving a lasting impression, long after the party is over.
