PinotNoir / Tamar Valley / Tasmania
The Apple Isle is blessed by a confluence of season and clime, not dissimiliar to the great Pinot growing terroirs of La Bourgogne. Chilly nights, morning mists and an extended vintage encourage the vines to yield harvests of tiny berries, brimming with piquant sassafras cherry flavours, cossetted by a patina of refined, elegant tannins. Treated to a course of Burgundian vinification techniques, whole bunches and open ferments, hand plunges and a term of age in French oak, the Pinot Noir of choice to accompany salmon cutlets, cherry glaze and morel.

CabernetSauv / Coonawarra / SouthAustralia
Captain Stentiford established his Shiraz vineyard in 1896, naming the property Laira after a merchant trader. Plantings of Cabernet came much later and have since been the source of memorable single vineyard wines. Laira's exceptional character shines when the grapes are fashioned into a pure Cabernet wine, encapsulating the combination of climate and soil, aspect and fruit, that stamps this historical vineyard with individuality. The flavours are distinctly Coonawarra, but the perfume and succulent fruit characters are conspicuously Brands Laira.

Eric and Nancy Brand purchased the Laira Vineyard and adjoining property in 1946; and over the next decade extended the vineyard to 23 hectares of vines. The first wine sold under the Laira label was released in 1966. Fruit from this century-old Original Vineyard is still used today in the production of the Brand’s of Coonawarra Stentiford’s Reserve and Patron’s Reserve.

McWilliam’s Wines purchased a 50 per cent share of the Brand’s Estate in 1990 and the remaining 50 per cent in 1994, with Eric and Nancy’s sons Jim and Bill Brand retained as winemakers. McWilliam’s Wines is today one of the largest landholders in Coonawarra, with almost 300 hectares of mainly cabernet sauvignon and shiraz vines. In recent years the company has extended the Estate to include the 165 hectare Station Block and 100 hectare Kirkgate vineyards.
