Samsara means 'to flow on'. The drawing on the label is a Celtic Tree of Life motif, a reference to the continuous cycle of life and represents the perpetual renewal and revitalisation of Avondale's living system. 100% organic Syrah. Soft wood, white pepper, violets, red berries and orange peel arrest the nose. On the palate plum, cherry, clove, cinnamon and pepper. Beautiful balance between fruit, firm tannins and fresh acidity.
Serve with red meat and lamb. Stews and recipes with spicy and tangy marinades adore this Syrah.
