Que Syrah, Syrah:
A Comparative Tasting of Syrah Varietal Wines from around the World
In 1983 famous wine writer Jancis Robinson wrote, "It's strange the Syrah grape is not cultivated more widely when it is capable of such thrilling, long-lived wines." Once relegated to a few small pockets in the Northern Rhone and South Australia, in just a few decades Syrah has taken root all over the world! Now, as well as spreading through most of Southern France and Australia, it thrives in Washington, California, Spain, Portugal, Chile, Tuscany, and South Africa. Come see what makes this grape so thrilling, what caused it to spread so rapidly, and taste how it has evolved in its new terroirs. If you like bold spicy reds, this class is for you!
