L.A.S Vino CBDB Chenin Blanc 2020
A bottle of the 2018 vintage (pictured) was thoroughly enjoyed over lunch at Harvest in Newrybar in February. Now we have just received stock of the 2020 release. This is well worth a try if you are yet to experience the wines of L.A.S Vino. - Ches Cook, FWC.
CBDB (Chenin Blanc Dynamic Blend). A certified organic and biodynamic site at the northern end of the cape. For the previous few years the vineyard had been completely unkept and unpruned with no trellising. The vines sprawl everywhere where pigs, geese, guineafowl and cows roam free. The site faces north with a little creek running through the middle of the vineyard. Native flowers and plants grow under the rows with no herbicides or pesticides sprayed and no cultivation. It is one of only a few certified biodynamic vineyards in the region and was one of the first to receive Demeter certification. The fruit was hand picked and showed varied levels of ripeness through the vineyard and crop, chilled overnight and hand sorted prior to being lightly cold pressed as whole bunches, very gently over a few hours. The juice was left to naturally settle prior to a wild fermention in french barriques and clay amphora. No malolactic fermentation and fortnightly lees stirring prior to being bottled with no fining and a light filtration.
