Beautifully textured and balanced, this wine is a lovely
combination of dense eucalyptus with hints of dark
chocolate but retaining a silky elegance. Lovely fresh
cool climate Cabernet.
Producer Note
Named ‘Winery of the Year’ by James Halliday and Matt Skinner, Larry Cherubino
wants his wines to be distinctive and to speak clearly of their variety and vineyard
site. He believes in paying meticulous attention to the vineyard, canopy and water
management, picking at the right time and minimal intervention in the winery. Larry
also makes wine under the Laissez Faire label, an exquisite range of natural wines
which are the ultimate expression of site, made in small batches from hand
harvested grapes. From delicate whites to opulent reds, all his wines have pure class
and finesse.
Vineyard
The Margaret River wine region is located in Western Australia and in less than 50
years has grown to become one of the world's great wine producing regions. The
fruit is grown in the Wilyabrup subregion, in a north facing vineyard, with lateritic, red
loam soils. The area is influenced by the Indian Ocean and this maritime climate
lends itself to ideal viticulture conditions, with cooling sea breezes mitigating the
warm summer temperatures. The vines were planted in 1998 onto their own
rootstocks and at a density of 1,666 vines per hectare.
Winemaking
The fruit was hand harvested, transported to the winery where it was cooled
overnight and then carefully sorted. A gentle maceration and fermentation took
place at temperatures ranging from 12 to 27°C, lasting for approximately six weeks,
with minimal pump-overs. The wine was pressed to tank and then allowed to settle
for seven days, prior to oak maturation.
Tasting Note
Aromas of red earth with a compote of berries and fine nuances of dried bay leaf.
The oak is gentle with delicate spice notes, soft tannins and a long complex finish.
Serving Suggestion
Ideal with slow roasted lamb shoulder and rosemary potatoes.
