L.A.S. Vino Pirate Blend 2018L.A.S. Vino
Origin: Margaret River, Australia
Grapes: Touriga, Tinta Cao, Sousao
One of the most charismatic red wines in Margaret River. Touriga, Tinta Cao, and Sousao all getting along like a house on fire. It is comprised of three Portuguese native varieties inspired by Nic's time making wines in Portugal: Touriga Nacional, Tinta Cao and Sousao, all three of these characters offer something a little different to the party.
94 pts The Wine Front - "Talk about immaculate. This is millimetre-perfect stuff. Savoury, light- to medium-bodied, intricately tannic, balanced and long. It’s a dry, textural wine with a floral aspect sitting not just on the nose but right inside the palate. Bravo. It’s not a profound wine but it does everything right and then some." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
