Vinum Shiraz or Shyrah engraved wine glasses description and use

The Shiraz or Syrah wine glass is 9 3/4 inches tall and holds 24 3/8 ounces .

It is called Syrah in its country of origin, which is France, as well as in the rest of Europe, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay and most of the United States. The name Shiraz became popular for this grape variety grown and produced in Australia and New Zealand. In Australia, it was also commonly called Hermitage up to the late 1980s, but since that name is also a French Protected designation of origin term, this naming practice caused a problem in some export markets and was dropped. The name Shiraz for this grape variety is also commonly used in South Africa and Canada.

This shape was developed between 1993 and 1995 following tastings in the major Syrah growing regions, when most influential winemakers contributed their views on how the message of their wines should be put across.

The wines made from the Australian grape variety Shiraz, give a deep purple, almost inky color. The nose resembles intense, rich blackberry aromas. The flavors on the palate show mouth filling fruit, massive structure and a long sweet finish.

The Syrah glass highlights the tannins, offering a perfect balance with the overwhelmingly concentrated fruit.

Recommended for: Amarone, Blaufränkisch, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Grenache, Hermitage rouge, Malbec, Mourvèdre, Pinotage, Shiraz, Syrah.
