Syrah vs. Sirah

Syrah vs. Sirah

In the northern Rhone Valley, Syrah is used to produce the fabulous Hermitage and Cote Rotie reds, reputedly the “manliest of all wines.” In the southern Rhone, Syrah provides the backbone for the Cotes du Rhone and Chateauneuf-du-Pape blends, which contain not only Syrah, but also Grenache, Mourvedre and Cinsault, plus several other varieties unfamiliar to most Americans.

Always handy to know what’s what with your wine.
I’ve been a Rhone fan since 1974.

Thanks for the link Christine.
