About The Wine

Nic Peterkin has taken his time to produce his own rendition of Margaret River's flagship red variety, Cabernet Sauvignon.

He was waiting until he found the right vineyard. In 2018, he found it.

This certified organic and biodynamic site in the northern end of the cape was unkempt and wild. The vines grew between free-roaming pigs and guineafowl, flowers and native weeds. With no herbicides or pesticides used, it was a veritable organic wonderland for Cabernet to grow and thrive.

Nic hand-harvested the fruit, individually hand selected the berries and bunches that would make the cut, then fermented the fruit in barrel for one year before release.

It's a very impressive wine - powerful and beautifully detailed. It feels like a coming of age wine for this vanguard WA producer.

For the L.A.S. Vino Cabernet, it was 100% worth the wait.

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.

Additional Info

From The Producer

A smooth, rich full bodied wine with dark rich fruit flavours of blackberry, blueberry, strawberry and raspberry. Layers and layers of silky tannin through the extended maceration. A wine that can be put down for at least 10 years and comes into its own by decanting. A cabernet without comparison in Margaret River.

The fruit was hand-picked and cooled, followed by bunch and berry sorting by hand. This led to to an almost black caviar appearance of fruit in the fermenters. The fruit was naturally fermented as whole berries in large format barriques for 20-30 days. Plunged by hand and left to ferment at ambient cellar temperature with skins and seeds for 20-30 days prior to pressings direct to barrel. The wine matured for 16 months prior to hand bottling direct from barrel. No fining nor filtration. Made with certified Organic and Biodynamic Grapes.

    A big, deep and long Cabernet. Ideal to enjoy with a well cured O'Connor t-bone. Delicious fruit and spice combined in a nicely structured red. WA at its best.

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. 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 consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

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 02 8376 8775 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? 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).
