Brands Laira Blockers Cabernet Sauvignon
The palate is smooth and round with a base of solid yet fine tannins with rich dark fruit flavours, and well integrated spice and pencil shaving oak. The finish is long and persistent with lingering fruit flavours.
Some 50 years later in 1950 Eric Brand and his wife Nancy Redman acquired the same 24 hectare property with just over 2 hectares of Shiraz and named it ‘The Laira’ Vineyard in honour of Captain Stentiford’s favourite Clipper, which bore the same name. Today the brand proudly offers an outstanding range of wines, including the Flagship One Seven One Cabernet – recently awarded Best Coonawarra Cabernet at the International Wine Challenge 2017 and the highly awarded Blockers Cabernet.
