You Say Shiraz, I Say Syrah

The Age praises NZ syrah – not to be confused with Australian shiraz. “Like the name itself, Kiwi syrah – see-rahhh – has a wistful quality to it. Delicately perfumed, intensely rich in colour, it is generally much finer and lighter in structure than the warm, ripe Aussie shiraz we are used to.” Recommended are Craggy Range 2001 Le Sol Syrah and 2001 Block 14 Syrah, and Te Mata 2002 Bullnose Syrah and 2002 Woodthorpe Syrah-Viognier.
