Expert Reviews

Brand's Laira founder, Eric Brand (now in his 90s) released his first wines in 1966 with his 1976 Cabernet Sauvignon remaining a regional benchmark. Today, Peter Weinberg heads up the winemaking team with his '07 an equal yard stick. The 2007 crop was tiny, following the disastrous spring frosts of 2006 but the flavours are exquisite with aromas of cassis and mulberries with hints of sandalwood and dried herbs. The palate is equally refined with the depth and length to see out a decade in a cool cellar.Peter Bourne - Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine (FEB-MAR/2011)
