Celebrate Cabernet Sauvignon Day with wines from Coonawarra
One of the world’s finest Cabernet Sauvignon regions.
The Coonawarra region of South Australia is one of the world’s finest Cabernet Sauvignon regions. This is due to the rich terra rossa soils, free draining soils and maritime climate.
The Cabernet Sauvignon wines from this region are characterised by purity, ripeness, and intensity of flavour balanced with elegance and structure.
Brand’s Laira Cabernet Sauvignon wines are the ultimate varietal expression. They are approachable and delicious now but can age wonderfully with long-term cellaring.
Brand’s Laira has some of the oldest Cabernet Sauvignon vines in the region. Our carefully tended vineyards produce exceptional quality grapes, perfect for crafting wines in the classic Coonawarra style with outstanding modern refinement due to decades of winemaking expertise.
2019 Blockers Cabernet Sauvignon - Named in honour of founder Eric Brand, one of the original ‘Blockers’ (landholders who sold their grapes to larger wineries in the 1950s and 60s). Blockers Cabernet is one of the icons of our range. Made in classic Coonawarra style, it is the perfect combination of rich fruit, complexity and elegance. An intense palate with powerful fine-grained tannins and a long fine finish.
2016 One Seven One Cabernet Sauvignon -The grapes for our flagship wine are sourced from the number one block of Cabernet Sauvignon, planted in 1971 on the famous terra rossa soils. The combination of bright fruit from established old vines, coupled with the elegance of top-quality French oak has produced a balanced wine. It finishes long with fine, velvety tannins and lingering fruit notes. Lovely to drink now, but with careful cellaring this wine will continue to improve over the next 20 years.
A visit to the region is a must. Nestled between the bustling cities of Melbourne and Adelaide lies Coonawarra, the internationally renowned wine region and home to the Brand’s Laira Coonawarra Cellar Door.
