Weybridge - 21st March 2024 - Wine Tasting - Syrah vs Shiraz

Join us for our Monthly exploration into the wine world. 

Tonight we look at one of the greatest red varieties - Syrah....also known as Shiraz.

With it's origins from Persia, it is no doubt thanks to the wine-loving Romans, that this variety found it home in the Rhone valley.

In the Northern Rhone it makes beautifully powerful yet elegant,complex wines and of course it blends wonderfully with Grenache in the Southern Rhone.  However it has taken on a new persona in the wines to found in USA, Argentina, South Africa, New Zealand and of course Australia.  Confusingly, it is labelled Shiraz or Syrah, depending on the style of the wines.  When the wine is deemed to be a cooler and more elegant style, it tends to be called Syrah and when richer, riper and spicer, it tends to be called Shiraz. 

Tonight we're going to taste a host of examples to understand the differences of terroir, climate, history and winemaking have on this varietal. 

The Tasting will be served with platters of Cheese, Charcuterie as well as nibbles, olives and breads.

Starting at 7.30pm running till 9.30 

The Tasting is held in our store, 59 Queens Road Weybridge, KT13 9UQ
