About The Wine

Nic Peterkin's star is on the rise. He forms part of the New Guard of WA wine blazing a new trail for the West.

With deep family roots in Margaret River wine and a lifetime spent surrounded by some of the finest examples of Margaret River Chardonnay, Nic has a keen eye for quality fruit and has his own take on style for the Great White Grape of Margaret River.

Here, Nic takes Chardonnay from 20 year old vines in the heart of Wilyabrup, the epicentre of all top-flight Chardonnay in this region. Plenty of lees stirring and full malo, a dash of new oak makes this as flashy and wickedly decadent as Chardonnay gets from this part of the world.

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 and Sousao, all finding a home amongst his eye-catching range.

There's some serious substance to his project, being named as the 2016 Gourmet Traveller Young Winemaker of the Year for his eclectic and tantalising releases.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

This is funky, leesy, vanilla and spice infused peach and nectarine goodness. It's a little more slender and restrained than the previous release, a fraction tighter, but it delivers a big whack of Margaret River Chardonnay hedonistic delight. The fruit here is singing with the oak in perfect chorus. Great wine for Margaret River Chardonnay lovers.  - Different Drop Wine Team

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

Are there volume discounts?

Yes we offer volume discounts on larger orders. Orders over $499 get a 5% and orders over $999 get a 10% discount. This will be automatically applied during checkout.

How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
