Featured Wine: Syrah

Our Winery at the Lake of the Ozarks is home to many great varieties of wine, including Syrah! Syrah is one of the world's most popular and widely planted red wine grape varieties.  It is a dark skinned berry that produces deeply colored and concentrated, rich, red wines with the ability to age and evolve for years or even multiple decades.  Typical scents include blackberries, plumbs, black cherries, flowers, spice, earth, chocolate, licorice, blueberry, pepper and truffles.  While it is planted all over the world, more Syrah is planted in France than in any other country!

History of Syrah

Syrah grapes are the offspring of two ancient varietals that individually never gained mass popularity. It was created when Dureza, a dark skinned berry was crossed with Mondeuse Blance, a white skinned grape.  How long Syrah grapes have been in existence is not known, but today Syrah continues to gain popularity.  Today Syrah is ranked as the world's 6th most planted grape!

Food Pairings

Syrah is one of the most versatile wines when it comes to food pairing.  The natural freshness, spice and rich character, coupled with the wide variety of styles Syrah produces, makes it easy to pair. Some of the best dishes to pair it with include:

  • Any roasted, grilled or smoked meat dishes like: duck, beef, veal, sausage and chicken
  • Game
  • Rich braised dishes and stews 
  • Cassoulet
  • Grilled Steaks
  • American Hamburgers
  • A myraid of different hard and soft cheeses
