About The Wine

The Pirate Blend. Now this is a wine with a lot of personality. This is different than your average Margaret River blend.

It is comprised of three Portuguese native varieties and a dash of Cabernet, inspired by Nic's time making wines in Portugal: Touriga Nacional, Tinta Cao and Sousao, all three of these characters offer something a little different to the party.

The bottle looks like it has just been brought up from below deck and the wine itself feels raw and untamed, but underneath it all is some serious winemaking and a clear vision which has been realised brilliantly by Peterkin.

Want to see what is on the cutting edge of Margaret River? The Pirate Blend is it!

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.

DDS review

Blue and red fruit, some blood suasage and turkish spice. Firm, sappy tannins run like ribs through the wine. It's smooth, sleek and seductive with an edge. A slippery and delicious mouthful of wine punctuated with a spicy finish. - Different Drop Wine Team

Additional Info

From The Producer

 The Pirate Blend contains three Portuguese varieties: Touriga Nacional for structure and depth. Tinta Cao for aroma and finesse. Sousao is the darkest berry I know, and you know what they say, the darker the berry, the sweeter the fruit. All the fruit was hand picked from 40 year old dry grown vines in Yallingup. The wine was both bunch and berry sorted prior to softening for 18 months in French oak.
