New Zealand's Syrah regions
Winemakers were divided on whether co-fermenting syrah with a little viognier makes a better wine. Some do it, others don’t. Regional and subregional differences in syrah are more significant than the influence that viognier makes to the wine.
Hawke’s Bay and the upper North Island (especially Waiheke Island) have a hot, new-ish red-wine variety, attracting growing international acclaim.
75% of the country's Syrah is grown in these two regions.
