Brand & Sons, "Fire & Ice" Shiraz 2019

Get to know: Brand & Sons, "Fire & Ice" Shiraz 

Tasting Note

Lifted aromas of blueberry, blackberry and raspberry with a core of dark plum, overlaid with spice and hint of toasty oak. On the palate rich plum and forest berry fruits lead on a fleshy, full-bodied palate with fine-grained tannins with fresh acidity providing balance and structure.

Enjoy this with slow-cooked stews, sizzling barbecues, or strong cheddar.

Kate Says

"If you like your wine to be bold and flavoursome, this is for you. A fabulous example of that big Aussie style that's a joy to pair with barbecue food."

Producer Info

Brand & Sons is a boutique wine producer based in Coonawarra, South Australia, focused on producing small batch wines that highlight the flavours of the Coonawarra. Since 1852, the Brand family have distinguished themselves with their authenticity, ingenuity and determination. These characteristics are the foundation of a legacy which has endured for six generations, from pioneering bushman to an Australian winemaking dynasty. Brand & Sons is owned and managed by fourth generation vigneron, Sam Brand and family.

Jim Brand was born into the third generation of this Australian winemaking legacy with his family name synonymous with the world-renowned Coonawarra region. His life was dedicated to producing iconic wines from the family vineyards, with a passion and sincerity evident in every glass. This passion spoke much louder than his words, his influence felt long after his time passed. In honour of Sam’s late father. The first release was from the 2005 vintage, the year that Jim Brand died.

This wine refers to past struggles in the vineyard managing extremes of night frosts and a hot sunshine filled days. The fruit is machine picked, fermented on skins and pumped over twice daily for maximum extraction of colour and flavour. Malolatic fermentation occurs in a mix of new and oak and the wine is matured further in oak for 18 months before bottling. Oak used was a mixture of new (25%) and second shave fine grained French and American barrels.
