Vivino's Regional Styles

Australian Shiraz

Australia's most popular grape varietal, Shiraz is full-bodied with high alcohol, and vibrant berry and plum on both the nose and palate. Australia's hot summers and cooler winters impart a complexity and structure that collects well and is a worldwide favorite.

Shiraz is described as robust and spicy with a slightly sweet finish. You will also enjoy a velvety and slightly syrupy mouthfeel when enjoying this varietal.

Genetically identical to French Syrah, these grapes migrated to Australia in the 19th century and flourished taking on characteristics of indigenous flora. It is not uncommon to taste notes of Eucalyptus when enjoying this wine.

Growing to commercial prominence in the last decade of the 20th century, Shiraz is a fan favorite the world over and is a great wine for drinkers of different levels of experience.

Peppery and deep, enjoy this wine with flavorful spicy foods from steak, to mediterranean and even latin cuisines. This wine can overpower more subtle dishes, so be cautions to avoid lighter proteins and unspiced seafood.
