L.A.S Vino ‘Granite’ Grenache 2019
Soothe the heat of the sun and make the dark nights brighter with a sip of ‘Granite’.
Enthralling ruby-violet colour. Whole bunch fermentation developed pointed forest, earth and root vegetable aromas with layers of red fruits, orange peel and floral elements. Imagine pretty red fruits in Campari, where the fruit flavours transcend ‘fruitiness’, twisted into something more interesting. The medium-bodied palate has a crunchy acidity with the addition of toasty oak flavours.
There’s nothing conventional about L.A.S. Vino, a new-generation producer in Margaret River that isn’t afraid of challenging traditional wine norms in Australia. Nic Peterkin’s driving force for himself and L.A.S. Vino is the art and joy of creation; it’s about constant change and being dynamic. Peterkin doesn’t own any vineyards but sources the fruit for his wines from around the Margaret River region. As a creator and experimenter, his vision is to produce varieties and blends that no one else is doing, love it or hate it.
