Tirazis, whose name refers the Syrah variety’s origins in the ancient kingdom of Persia, begins on hillsides of Cerro Algarrobo on the Belén Estate in Casablanca. The grapes come from vines grown the old way—head-trained, natural, and free.
WHAT’S BEHIND THE NAME?
In the Elamite language, Tiraziš means Shyraz, the name of the old Persian city believed to be the origin of the Syrah grape variety.
