How do I choose a good shiraz?

The palate should have plenty of flavour, usually with a lovely sweetness in the mid-palate due to ripe fruit and alcohol. Young wines will often give a firm tannin impression of big, but soft, chewy, mouth-puckering tannins. In older wines the tannins will be finer giving a grainy sensation.

How do you pronounce shiraz wine?

Shiraz is the Aussie nickname for Syrah. It's pronounced “Shee-RAZZ” in that Australian accent; here in the States the way people say it rhymes more with “pizzazz.” I also sometimes hear the second syllable a bit more softly, ending more in an "–oz" sound.
