Persia Shiraz is known as the city of poets, wine, flowers and nightlife.

 

_
Varietal Syrah or Shiraz. Of the more well known as wines, this is the
style of Hermitage in northern Rhone or Australian Shiraz.

_ Syrah blended with a small amount of Viognier. This is the traditional style of Cote-Retie in northern Rhone.

_
Syrah as a roughly equal blending component for Cabernet Sauvignon. In
modern times, this blend originated in Australia, so it is often known
as Shiraz cabernet.

_ Syrah as a minor blending component for
Grenache and Mourvedre. This is the traditional style of
Chateauneuf-du-Pape of southern Rhone.

Shiraz produces two different grapes (a very sweet white and slightly meaty dark).

The white grape had seeds and very sweet. I wonder if they make wine from White grape also?

Smaller amounts of Syrah are also used in the production of other wine styles, such as rose wine, fortified wine in Port wine style, and sparkling red wine. While Australian sparkling Shiraz traditionally have had some sweetness, a number of Australian winemakers also make a full-bodied sparkling dry Shiraz, that contains the complexity and sometimes earthy notes that are normally found in still wine.
