Brand’s Laira is an iconic winery, nestled in the heart of the famed “terra rossa” strip of the Coonawarra region in South Australia. Steeped in heritage, our Laira Vineyard was planted back in 1893 and is one of the oldest working blocks in the region. Brand’s Laira offers a range of elegant yet richly flavoured premium wines from this distinct region.
Our Flagship range offers superb quality, richly flavoured wines that have been created with deep respect for the great history of the winery, and the vision of our Founder and Coonawarra’s First Patron, Eric Brand.
WINE MAKERS NOTES
The fruit was hand-picked from the original vineyard planted in 1893 and tended by Captain Stentiford. The wine was fermented and placed in French oak barriques, hogsheads and puncheons to complete primary and malolactic fermentation. After a further 21 months of maturation each barrel was assessed for quality prior to bottling.
The elegant, mid-weight palate displays lovely plum and dark cherry fruits with spicy vanilla notes from time in French oak. The structure is powerful but elegant with fine velvety tannins and a long finish.
