While Shiraz and Syrah are genetically the same grape, the distinction lies in the regional styles and winemaking traditions that lead to different expressions of the wine.

Syrah is often more structured and earthy, reflecting its Old-World heritage, while Shiraz is typically fruitier and bolder, showcasing New World innovation. In Australia we are seeing more producers, particularly in cooler regions, leaning towards Syrah – pursuing elegance and charm.
