Syrah/Shiraz

A varietal that is revered for its tannic power and dominance as seen in Northern Rhone to parts of Australia while also being a supporting cast with a host of other grape varieties like grenache and cabernet sauvignon. There were very clear winners in this category and a great showing from the British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley. Syrah is a distinct grape variety showing pepper and spice, forest, leather, smoke, roasted meats, and blackberries with a kinetic mouthfeel. While produced in many areas of the world in particular styles, these wines are incredibly food friendly and sought after.
