Syrah/Shiraz Tasting: from France, Argentina, Australia and Romania (Bucharest)

Syrah/Shiraz Tasting: from France, Argentina, Australia and Romania (Bucharest)

2024 comes with new tastings from Winesday Specials series. The first theme this year is the discovery of the Syrah/Shiraz grape variety.

Syrah grape originates in the Northern Rhone in the Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie regions. The same variety is also called Shiraz in the "New World" wine countries and the use of one of the two names actually indicates a winemaking style.

On February 21st, I invite you to discover 5 wines from the Syrah/Shiraz variety and make the difference between the Old World and the New World of wine in the case of these wines. As a common note Syrah/Shiraz is recognized worldwide for its peppery/spicy notes, but the wines have other flavors waiting to be discovered.

For this event, we chose 5 wines from 4 countries: 2 in Romania and 1 each from Argentina, Australia and France. The wine tasting will be done blind. If you have never participated in a blind wine tasting before, you will have a very interesting experience.

On February 21, 2024, at 6:30 p.m., I will meet you at Băcănia Veche Delicatese & Grădină to try 5 wines of the Syrah/Shiraz variety. The tasting will be accompanied by a delicious food menu (consisting of appetizer and main course) signed by Băcănia Veche Delicatese & Grădină.
