About The Wine
This is an excellent expression of a more delicate style Cabernet Franc from Margaret River.
It's a painstaking process to get this wine to bottle. Each bunch was hand picked, each berry individually selected for optimal ripeness. The fruit is then sent to clay amphora to ferment with a small portion fermented as whole berries in the pots to give a little more stucture to the finished wine.
It's fresh, fragant and super slippery to drink.
Great perfume, great mouthfeel. Great package here from the Margaret River young gun.
About L.A.S. Vino
Nic Peterkin’s blood runs red with Margaret River wine. The son of Pierro founder, Dr Mike Peterkin and Shelly Cullen, of you guessed it, Cullen wines fame, the force is strong with this one. His wines are out there, challenging the status quo of one of the country’s most respected wine producing regions. This is the “New Guard” of Margaret River, and the wines are coming out all guns blazing.
Nic is playing with some varieties off the beaten path of classic Margaret River. Nebbiolo, Touriga Nacional, Sousao and Chenin Blanc, all finding a home amongst his eye-catching range. And when it comes to his winemaking, Nic cuts no corners with incredible attention to detail and a willingness to experiment.
There’s some serious substance to Nic's project, being named as the 2016 Gourmet Traveller Young Winemaker of the Year for his eclectic and tantalising releases. L.A.S. Vino is the future of Margaret River and a producer to get behind.
