L.A.S Vino 2016 CBDB

 Style: Chenin Blanc (dynamic blend)

Region: Margaret River, WA

Vintage:  2016

CBDB (Chenin Blanc Dynamic Blend).  Most of the wine is Chenin Blanc. But for good measure we have  co-fermented a bit of Viognier (4%) with natural yeasts from the skins of the berries. 

The wine was split into thirds; with a third  barrel fermented in old oak, a third put into granite like vessels and a third undergoing malolactic fermentation.  The wine was left for 10 months in these vessels to mature with a little bit of stirring.  Nothing except a touch of sulphur (for stability)  and a little clay (for clarity) was added prior to bottling the wine unfiltered.
