Syrah wine description:
Who would like a taste of the South of France at Christmas? Of course! Well join us in a glass of Syrah (also known as Shiraz in France) by joining or giving someone a membership to the Wine Of The Month Club (select December for the Month to start for a pre Christmas gift delivery). Syrah wine is packed with bags of fruit, savoury spice and rustic tannins, and this French wine will have you drifting into France with each glass.

“It’s also got premium labelling on the bottle so it adds to the theatre of Christmas gift giving”

About Syrah wine: Syrah is also known as Shiraz and is a dark-skinned grape variety grown throughout the world - and is used mainly to produce red wine. And during the year 1800 the first Syrah grapes were taken from a city in Iran to France, the country of its origin.

Syrah grapes are also used as a varietal and blended with other grapes for wine making across the world and has been estimated (in 2004) to be the world’s 7th most grown grape - growing on over 142,600 hectares or 352,000 acres. Syrah can also be found around the world from France to more newer wine regions such as Chile, South Africa, the Hawke’s Bay in New Zealand, California, Washington and in a number of Australian wine regions including the Barossa, Coonawarra, Hunter Valley, Margaret River, McLaren Vale wine regions and more.

Salute and have a great Christmas everybody!
