Syrah, born in the  French Rhône wine region, also known as Shiraz ("invented" by Australians), is a dark-skinned grape variety grown throughout the world and used primarily to produce red wine. In 1999, Syrah was found to be the result of two less known grapes from southeastern France, Dureza and Mondeuse Blanche. Great wines from DFJ VINHOS like the GRAND'ARTE Shiraz are examples of the finesse of this grape.
