Syrah versus Shiraz

Shiraz, Syrah, tomatoe, tomahtoe – what’s the difference anyway?

The short answer

It’s the same red-wine grape, just different wine styles.

Syrah

Syrah on a label can be used to indicate that the wine has been made in the Old World style of the traditional wine-growing areas of Europe. It’ll be lighter-bodied with more herb, mineral and floral components.

Shiraz

Shiraz, on the other hand, usually means the wine is made in a New World style of lands such as Australia and Argentina, and the wine is more intense, full-bodied and fruit-forward.
