Each of our wines is linked to a specific flower – the characteristics of the wine are symbolized by that particular flower on the label.
In line with the labelling of the Limited Release Range the Label has been inverted to reflect the status of this wine. This Syrah has powerful spiced aromas of cloves and herbs, much like one would experience whilst strolling through a herb garden.
