Its origin is quite controversial and has not been defined yet. The most widespread version asserts this grape was originally grown in Shiraz, Persia and that it is 3,000 years old. It is said that it was introduced in Europe through the Sicilian port of Siracusa. Another version about its origin assures it comes from Southern France.
The truth is that Syrah is strongly tannic and suitable for long aging in wood. This vine of intense aroma, solid and austere, is reminiscent of spices such as cloves, cinnamon and pepper, fruit like raspberries, wildberries and figs and a touch of dark chocolate. Light and fresh, it has a silky texture and has a long aftertaste.
In our country, this variety is gaining remarkable acceptance in the Province of San Juan. It combines perfectly with matured cheese, pasta with red sauce, meat, stew and pizza.
Cluster: mid-sized to small, compact, with cylindrical shape.
