L.A.S. Vino Albino PNO
The colour of a chilly autumn sunset, with every shade of orange and pink. Swirl a glass of L.A.S Vino Albino PNO, take in a deep breath and let your nose be filled with the aroma of strawberries, roses, wild honey and buttered popcorn. Take a sip, pause and taste the sea; refreshing and alive. The dry palate is rich with flavor and texture, with a hint of tangy acidity.
This wine was created to combine both strawberries and cream in a glass. The winemakers at L.A.S found that if pinot noir was picked early, aromas of strawberries would shine! Chardonnay can give traits of butter and cream with malolactic fermentation and stirring of the lees. The first year the wine was made, the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay were whole bunch pressed in the exact same way, resulting in a wine that is not as rosy as expected but white. Thus, the Albino PNO was born (80% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay).
The Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vineyard is situated 3km from the Indian ocean on a gentle north-facing slope, that flows into a dam. It’s one of the last vineyards in Margaret River that contain Pinot Noir. The vineyard doesn’t use herbicides and pesticides and contains a healthy amount of native plants in the midrow which protrude up in the vine. The soil is gravelly loam with a little bit more loam than gravel.
