Post How Syrah Wines are Made
How Syrah Wines are Made
by: Michelle Ching

Wines are probably one of the most popular, if not the popular alcoholic beverage in the world. It is usually made out of fermented grape juice. There are various types of wine because there are also various types of grapes to make wine from. Syrah or Shiraz grapes are one of the most popular type of grape that winemakers use to make high quality wines.

Have you ever wondered why grapes are used to make this well loved alcoholic beverage? Grapes are typically used to make wine because they have the ability to ferment without adding any sugars or other nutrients to it. Since it is already naturally sweet, winemakers usually just put in yeast to it. As we all know, yeast feeds on sugar. The sugar is eventually broken down into an alcohol and carbon dioxide.

So how are Syrah wines actually made? Winemakers taste the grape first and checks whether the grape's sugar content is ready for winemaking. Once the Syrah wines have been harvested, they are dropped into bins and crushed in the winery. The grapes are crushed with skins and seeds on. This what makes a wine a red wine. On the other hand, if you're making white wine, you crush the grapes sans the skins and the seeds. Once the grapes are crushed, they are placed into fermenting tanks with cultured yeast. Once it has fermented, the wines are placed into barrels to allow it to age. Oak barrels are usually used in this process of winemaking. After months of aging, the wine in the barrels is transferred to its bottles to continue its aging process. Finally, when the wine is sufficiently aged, it is shipped to various parts in the world. And that is how Syrah wines are made.
