From the iconic Brand Family, who have been making wine in Australia and particularly Coonawarra since 1852 comes this classic Aussie Shiraz. Now in their 6th generation of winemakers, the family is known for producing high quality and well made wines witha clear sense of terroir.
This is classic aussie red, bold fruit, plush tannins and lots of spice. A great value wine from a fantastic winemaker.
Machine picked, the fruit was fermented on skins and pumped over twice daily to ensure maximum extraction of colour and flavour. Once dry the wine was pressed and pumped to new and used oak barrels to complete malo-lactic fermentation. On completion of malo-lactic fermentation the wine was racked off lees and then transferred back to oak for 18 months of final barrel maturation Oak used was a mixture of new (25%) & second shave fine grained French and American barrels.
Lifted aroma of raspberry and dark plum, overlaid with spice and hint of mocha. Ripe mulberry and plum fruits, mid-weight and flavour filled with fine tannins holding together a lengthy finish
The Brand family legacy dates back to 1852, stretching over six generations. Today, Brand & Sons is owned and managed by fourth generation vigneron Sam Brand, producing boutique wine using high quality products from select vineyard sites across South Australia.
Coonawarra is renowned as one of the world’s finest wine regions with a reputation for producing some of Australia’s best red wines, especially Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.

Sweetly fruited and fabulously fragrant, the bouquet shows blackberry, dark plum, vanillin oak and mixed spice characters. It’s equally satisfying on the palate with succulent fruit intensity and velvety mouthfeel, backed by silky tannins, finishing long and delectable.
