About

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 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 as 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

Additional Info

From The Producer

A singular vineyard in the heart of Willyabrup (Wildberry Springs). 20 year old gin gin clone, hand picked, cold pressed and fermented naturally in a combination of French oak and clay vessels, where it remained for 13 months. During this time the wine went through a full maloactic fermentation with regular lees stirring to create creaminess and body. The wine was settled in tank, chilled and bottled unfined with a light filtration. 

A wine of  subtle complexity; refined, elegant, and balanced. The more you look the more it gives. Melon, crisp granny smith apple, and a hint of cream. 

 

Blend : Chardonnay (100%)
