About The Wine
The CBDB (Chenin Blanc Dynamic Blend) is Chenin Blanc from the oldest certified biodynamic vineyard in Margaret River.
Winemaker Nic Peterkin looks for a more textural style of Chenin, and in search of mouthfeel, this gets the works. Cold soaked and basket pressed, fermented in a mixture of old oak and clay amphora, the wine is then stirred every fortnight to bring some leesy creaminess into the wine. The grapefruit and pear fruit flavours shine throughout.
And finally, the whole thing is finished with a French bottle, and cork and crisp wax seal.
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.
