Video: Syrah and Shiraz – northern Rhone and Barossa

Here’s a short film of me tasting two contrasting wines. Both are from the same grape variety, but one is a Syrah (Jean-Luc Columbo Crozes-Hermitage Les Gravieres 2008), the other a Shiraz (St Hallett Dawkins Vineyard Eden Valley Shiraz 2009 Barossa, Australia). Both are very good but in quite distinctively different styles.

  1. nice tasting but the dogs upstaged you again. My two were snoozing on the floor when yours barked. Took a couple minutes for them to settle down again.

  2. It struck me when you said the Crozes-Hermitage reminded you of Syrah from the Gimblett Gravels. I had a tasting of Esk Valley last week, and I had exactly the same experience. Especially on the nose the Gimblett Gravels Syrah made me think of a Saint-Joseph; the mouthfeel was different though, much less tannic.
