Syrah is nothing like so well known a grape variety as Cabernet Sauvignon or Pinot Noir, yet there is no doubt that it makes some of the world's greatest red wines. The aristocrats of the northern Rhone such as Hermitage, Cote Rotie and Cornas, which are made almost entirely from Syrah, have suffered ups and downs in reputation.

Grenache – Syrah – Mourvedre blended wines – commonly known by the acronym GSM – are the particular .

Grenache – Syrah – Mourvedre blended wines – commonly known by the acronym GSM – are the particular specialty of the southern Rhone Valley in France. Grenache and Syrah are key in this part of the world, and are complemented in this instance by the addition of Mourvedre: an important but slightly less famous inclusion to the blend. It gives tannins, color and length to the wine. Syrah, with its structure and dark fruit, is very much a French variety and is the mainstay of the northern Rhone Valley.

Mourvedre wine is a seemingly obscure grape used in some of the most famous red blends of the world. Saxum was made famous for their 100 point wine called 2007 James Berry Vineyard, a red wine of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre. A Perfect Grape for Hot Regions. Mourvedre is a very structured and thick-skinned grape that ripens very late in the season. It is moderately drought-tolerant, making it an ideal grape for warm climates. It’s Super Undervalued in Spain. Southeastern Spain was hit by the Phylloxéra louse in 1989.

book by Giles MacDonogh.

There are three main varieties of grapes that are most common for people to grow. Finally, the third most picked variety is the North American Muscadines. These are usually found in the south as they prefer warmer temperatures. The first option is the American grapes. They are known for their ability to withstand the colder temperatures. You should consider which types of grapes you enjoy the most as to which variety you’ll want to plant. I personally have muscadines, concords, and white seedless grapes growing in my backyard. You should also consider what purpose you have the grapes when deciding on the variety as well.

The most important factor in determining the taste of a wine is the grape variety from which it is made. This unique series looks at each of the major grape varieties and assesses wines made all over the world from that variety. The focus of the series is primarily on flavour and quality. Each volume includes background information on the grape variety and advice on the best way to buy, store and serve the wines made from it. An extensive gazetteer lists the main wines made from the variety in Europe, North and South America, Australia and New Zealand, and elsewhere. A special feature of this series is the individual ratings given for quality, price and best recent vintages.Practical, authoritative and easy to use, these guides are indispensable companions for all who care about the character and value of the wine they drink and who want to make the most of the ever-increasing range of wine that is now on the international market.Syrah is nothing like so well known a grape variety as Cabernet Sauvignon or Pinot Noir, yet there is no doubt that it makes some of the world's greatest red wines. The aristocrats of the northern Rhone such as Hermitage, Cote Rotie and Cornas, which are made almost entirely from Syrah, have suffered ups and downs in reputation. Now they are very much back in fashion. Ten years ago, few would have believed that a single-vineyard Cote Rotie would sell for more than Chateau Petrus. These days the best producers of Hermitage, Cornas and Cote Rotie could sell their limited production, even at the current extortionate prices, many times over.Syrah is known as Shiraz in Australia, and in the hot Barossa and Hunter Valleys it makes massively rich, ripe long-lasting wines which are arguably as great as their more refined Rhone relations. We will surely be seeing a worldwide Syrah boom in the next decade.The other two grapes dealt with in this volume are not generally considered among the world's elite. But much-despised Grenache is responsible for eighty per cent of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, now being appreciated as one of the great French wines, as well as delicious, unpretentious reds, roses and fortified wines from France, Spain and Sardinia.Mourvedre, the star of Bandol in the south of France, is fast becoming the most fashionable grape variety of all, especially since its discovery by the Rhone Rangers of California. Giles MacDonogh provides up-to-the-minute information on its strides forward in the New World, as well as the best producers worldwide of all three grape varieties.
