The 2010 Brand’s Laira ‘One Seven One’ Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from one of the oldest cabernet blocks on the Brand’s Laira property. Block 1, planted in 1971 is in the heart of Coonwarra and the vines here push deep into the famous terra rossa soils. This is a wine of intense dark berry fruit flavours and cedar wood spice nuances supported by ripe supple tannins that drive a very long finish.
Winemaker Peter Weinberg believes this wine to be the perfect follow up to the highly awarded 2009:
“2010 was excellent for us and this wine represents much of what we strive to achieve here at Brand’s Laira. A beautiful old vineyard, producing intensely flavoured berries that enable us to craft something that we can enjoy now or will continue to evolve for years to come.”
The 2010 has won no less than nine trophies and 14 gold medals so far and is made in strictly limited quantities. Secure yours before it is all gone.
