Strawberries and cream in a bottle may be a tall order but that's what we set out to do.
About the Wine
The Albino Pinot is a truly unique and wonderful creation.
A flat table wine made out of 8 barrels of Pinot Noir and 2 of Chardonnay, the Pinot is pressed gently off its skins and both varieties fermented separately in barrel. No fining, no filtration, this is a seriously funked up Rosé. In the pursuit of "strawberries and cream" in a bottle, Nic's Albino is textural, delightful and thought-provoking.
And most importantly, it is ridiculously moreish. The whole thing just works, from concept to the eye-catching packaging. Very, very, impressive stuff and totally delicious.
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.
