Luck Art Science (L.A.S) is the work of Nic Peterkin, whose family are responsible for Pierro and Cullen, which pretty much makes him Margaret River royalty.
L.A.S Vino was awarded Dark Horse Winery in the Halliday Wine Companion Awards 2023
CBDB stands for Chenin Blanc Dynamic Blend, and true to name it's 100% chenin blanc sourced from Margaret River's oldest certified biodynamic vineyard. The wine was fermetned in 1-2 year old barriques (225L) containing chardonnay lees (dead yeast cells), serving to add extra texture and complexity. The wine was bottled without fining and with only a light filtration.
This is a more texutural example of chenin, yet still with plenty of the variety's hallmark acidity. Winemaker Nic Peterkin describes it as tasting of "pink grapefruit, coconut, passionfruit, passiona, pavlova and lime."
This is definitely one of Australia's best examples of this variety.
