About

L.A.S. Vino stands for - Luck. Art. Science. The elements that Nic Peterkin believes go into making truly great wine. Here is a case in point. After a uni lecturer exposed him to some of the greatest Chenin Blancs in South Africa, Nic returned home to the Pierro estate where a young South African winemaker had just started working in the winery (Lucky!). After some beers, some gin, and more than a wine or two, they hatched a plan to create a Margaret River Chenin Blanc that was unlike anything ever made in this country. And he has gone for it. The CBDB (Chenin Blanc Dynamic Blend) is 96% Chenin Blanc and 4% Viognier. He has actively sought out some of the best, old vine Chenin in the region (and there's plenty around) to make this wonderful wine. With only 10 barrels made, this got the works. Cold soaked and basket pressed, fermented in old oak and in Clayvar before spending 11 months in oak and letting a portion go through malo for added texture (so, there's the Science). And finally, the whole thing is finished with a French bottle, and Czech glass stopper and crisp wax seal (And there's the Art). It looks wild and tastes it too but the enjoyment factor of this and the rest of the L.A.S. Vino range is through the roof.

What it Tastes Like

Sugared pineapple cubes, flint, mineral nose with pears dipped in wild honey. It has an easy complexity that it carries with it. Width of flavour but tension through the palate. Flesh and vibrancy. A lick of creaminess which gets pulled taught like a trip wire through the end. Compelling Chenin. Surely one of the country's best.
