I am excited for the AFL GF, but I am even more excited for tomorrow night's FREE wine tasting.
We will have the recently announced Gourmet Traveler Young Wine Maker of the Year - Nic Peterkin in store to take you through his ultra hand crafted wines, under his L.A.S VINO label.
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.
Open from 4.00pm until 7.00pm while wines last will be...
L.A.S VINO CBDB ( Chenin Blanc Dynamic Blend ) 2015 - only 3000 bottles made, this wine was inspired by Nik's wine lecturer's love of South African Vouvray style Chenin Blanc. Using excpetion fruit and a little co-fermented Viogner and Chardonnay as a New World twist, this is not your normal Chenin. An elegent monster!
L.A.S VINO ALBINO PINOT 2015 - No your not going crazy, this is Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in one wine, the best of Burgundy. Strawberries and cream in a bottle was the mission. Barrel work, beautiful oak, with such a long finish. You must try!
L.A.S. VINO ST MARY'S JERUSALEM CHARDONNAY 2015 - Using some of the best Chardonnay fruit in Margaret River from two vineyards picked on the same day. Wild Ferment, French oak and full Maloactic fermentation, your need to wrap your taste buds around this.
L.A.S VINO PIRATE BLEND 2013 - The Portuguese Pirate Blend contains three Portuguese varieties: Touriga Nacional for structure and depth. Tinta Cao for aroma and finesse. Sousao is the darkest berry I know, and you know what they say, the darker the berry, the sweeter the fruit.
L.A.S VINO NEBBIOLO 2014 - This wine isn't even released yet! I was the first in trade to try it yesterday, and my lucky bridgees will be the first consumers to try it! With whole berry ferment in oak for over 300 days, this wine was incredible. Bright fruits with brooding complexity. Come and share the launch with Nic and I .
