They’re the kind of vineyards you enjoy walking through, you imagine yourself sitting on the deck of the little wooden shack on the property growing old, drinking wine amongst good friends. It’s a weird thing to say but vineyards like this seem to grow better fruit.
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 fruit and his own take on style for the great White grape of Margaret River. Here, Nic combines the forces of two very different Chardonnay vineyards to create depth, complexity and drive.
The Jersualem's Grace Chardonnay is flashy, wickedly drinkable and as 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, 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.
