Young Gun of Wine  Searching for, showcasing and celebrating Australia's young guns of wine 🍷


Do you know Nicolas Peterkin from LAS Vino? He's in 2018 Young Gun of Wine UNCUT.

Born to Margaret River winemaking royalty, with Cullen @cullenwines on his mum's side and Pierro @pierro_vineyards on his dad's, Nic studied Oenology before travelling the world making wine in Mexico, USA and London.

With his label @l.a.s.vino, Nic exhibits a penchant for new styles, shades and blends of wine. LAS stands for Luck, Art and Science. "The three essentials needed in creating great wine," according to Nic.

Q. What winemaking lesson did you learn the hard way? 
A. The little things matter.
Q. What’s your favourite TV show… and what’s the perfect wine to drink with it? 
A. True Detective with Josh Cooper @joshuacooper88 Pinot Noir, Cause it evolves and get better and better, the plot develops with each episode just like the wine and the end you are left satisfied yet still mildly confused, but wanting more.

We're thrilled to announce Lisa Cardelli, head sommelier of @rockpooldininggroup's Rosetta restaurant in Melbourne, is joining our tasting panel - thanks to @sommeliersaustralia.

Originally from Italy, Lisa has worked in Australia for the last eight years.

Lisa said: "When I arrived in Australia, all I knew were big names, like Penfolds and Grosset. Then I discovered the many colours of Aussie wine, and in particular, the number of emerging winemakers crafting refreshing and exciting products.

I strongly believe that giving support to the next generation of winemakers is fundamental for the success and the continuation of the Australian wine story, both on local and global scale.

In the upcoming Young Gun of Wine tasting, I'm looking forward to finding wines that reflect the personal path of their maker: for example, a winemaker that has worked overseas, learnt new techniques and then translated that for their local terroir; or those that are changing the common perception of Australian wine." #YGOW #YGOWuncut

Meet Christobelle Anderson, second generation winemaker at Anderson @andersonwinery.

She’s in 2018 Young Gun of Wine UNCUT.

Q. Which of your wines best defines what you’re about?
A. If I was to answer this literally it would have to be a red, because that's what I mostly make (and love making). But I'm going to answer ideologically and say our Sparkling Chenin Blanc. I love Chenin, and have done for years, because it suits our climate in Rutherglen so well. Chenin has been very unfashionable with the wine media for a long time, but I really don't care about trends. I care about making good wine, that I personally really enjoy drinking.
Chenin blanc also not the easiest grape to deal with (it doesn't like modern methods like machine harvesting, and you have to accept a low yield). But by taking the tougher road and treating it right, I can make a fantastic premium Sparkling wine, with all natural acidity, from Chenin Blanc in a warm climate like Rutherglen, which excites me.
Also, our current release is 2011 and it has had over 5 years on yeast lees in the bottle to build texture and complexity. I like being able to release wines with a bit of age on them.

Do you know Dylan Arvidson of LS Merchants @ls.merchants ?

Dylan’s in 2018 Young Gun of Wine UNCUT.

The quintessential example of a young gun, this Geelong lad has immersed himself in vintages all over the wine world: from Australia, to New Zealand, Canada, USA, France, Portugal, and Spain.
Inspired by "garagiste" producers, Dylan started LS Merchants (formerly Les Sauvages) in 2013 whilst working @juniperestate.

Q. Which of your wines best defines what you’re about?
A. Our Vermentino. We live a life surrounded by the ocean surfing, rock hopping the costal pools and free diving for a healthy supply of seafood. It’s a salty, fresh and vibrant wine it’s a perfect example of our way of life.

Q. What are your 3 favourite wines right now?
A. Joh Jos Prum Graacher Himmelreich Kabinett 2015, straight up fire
- 2016 @mchenryhohnen ‘Burnside’ Chardonnay, best 2016 chardy in Margaret River hands down
- @rieslingfreakofficial #2, also hot fire

You know Vanessa Altmann @vanessaaltmann of Switch Organic Wine, yeah? She was a finalist in 2017 Young Gun of Wine.

Vanessa's back, in 2018 Young Gun of WIne UNCUT.

Q. Which of your wines best defines what you’re about?
A. It’s a little wine I’ve been working on for a few years: a non-vintage solera styled Riesling. Born out of a split-second decision not to waste heavy pressings with the hope that my interpretation of Riesling resonates with other makers and drinkers who are thinking about wine quality and waste.

Q. What winemaking lesson did you learn the hard way?
A. Use the glass not the analysis.

Meet Rob Paulazzo of @rpaulazzo wines. Having travelled for vintages in Burgundy, Tuscany, Napa Valley, Niagara Peninsula (Canada) and Marlborough; he's launched his own label - looking at regions close to home.

Rob’s in 2018 Young Gun of Wine UNCUT.

Q. What got you into wine?
A. My late Grandfather migrated from Italy with little more than the shirt on his back. He worked hard, bought land in the Riverina and established our family vineyard over 80 years ago. One of my earliest memories as a kid was riding on the grape harvester with him during vintage, watching tonnes of grapes fly off the vine! I was never destined to be anything else but a winemaker.
