Brand’s Laira Blockers Shiraz

Named in honour of founder Eric Brand, one of the original ‘Blockers’ (landholders who sold their grapes to larger wineries in the 1950s and 60s). Blockers Shiraz exhibits excellent fruit concentration, high colour density and a firm but fine tannin profile.

With a winemaking philosophy that focuses on sourcing the best possible fruit, the Brand's Laira wines are classically Coonawarra in nature, combining the powerful influence of the rich red soils of the "terra rossa" with skilled winemaking to create world renowned wines. Each range exhibits a shared standard of excellence and a distinctly Coonawarra style.
