Syrah or Shiraz is the name given to this grape variety depending on where you are in the world and on the style of the wine. In France, particularly in the Rhone Valley, it goes by the name of Syrah and it makes the floral reds of Hermitage, Cornas, St. Joseph and Côte Rôtie. In Australia, particularly in the Barossa Valley, it is called Shiraz and is much bolder, spicier and, often, oakier. It is planted across the world in the many regions and it is usually dependant on how the winemaker produces as to what its name will be: either in a prettier leaner style or a bulkier, fuller style.
