NSW wine company Casella Family Brands has announced new packaging for its Brand’s Laira Blockers range from Coonawarra.

The packaging, designed by creative agency The Key Branding, enables consumers to navigate and identify with the brand's story and highlight premium cues.

The range includes Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Shiraz, all sourced from the Coonawarra region.

The labels, printed by Multi-Color, include the following design elements:

• A new white and black label with use of red and gold font to bring modernity and a fresh, clean look to the range

• A ‘Pioneers of Coonawarra’ stamp to highlight the pioneering spirit of the Brand family who was one of the founding families of the Coonawarra region
• High-build gloss varnish introduced on text to ensure intensity of colour and highlight premium quality cues
• A StelvinLux closure with embossed ‘Pioneers of Coonawarra’ stamp on cap

The new pack has an RRP of $25.
