Syrah

The Syrah is a red variety, that according to the legend it to travelled to Europe by sea through seafarers and crusaders from the remote town of Chiraz in Persia, somewhere in today's Iran. It has gained its reputation in the Rhone Valley of France, and is now cultivated in almost all over the world, producing strong, distcinct wines that consistently rank first in the preferences of wine lovers.
In Greece, the cultivation began years ago in Macedonia and continues today in many wine-producing regions. The wines made with Syrah are usually full-bodied, deep red in color and complex, with a peppery flavor, and are suitable for aging.
