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.
Vintage
The 2014 warm summer cooled off in April, allowing the fruit to ripen at a leisurely
pace. Frankland River had an outstanding, above-average rainfall throughout the
winter and spring months. Spring's exceptional conditions allowed gentle warming
for fruit set. The dry, warm days continued until April, which provided excellent quality
yields with incredibly fresh and vibrant fruit from the region.
Vineyard
The vineyard was planted in 1997 in the Frankland River region with 1650 vines per
hectare. The vineyard has a beautiful northern aspect maximising the sun's exposure
and promoting the ripening potential and concentration of flavours in the grapes.
The soil is deep gravel over clay, providing good drainage for the vines.
Winemaking
The fruit was hand-picked, sorted and crushed in static, stainless steel fermenters.
The alcoholic fermentation lasted for three weeks with a very gentle maceration. The
time on the stems allowed for the softening of the tannins. The components were
then aged for 10 months in a combination of new and one-to-two year old French
oak barrels, prior to blending and bottling.
Tasting Note
An ultra-vibrant medium bodied wine with a bouquet of violets with an earthygraphite
nose. Violets emanate from the Malbec, with a focussed minerality from the
Cabernet Sauvignon. On the palate,cedary tannins weave through the cassis and
plum.
Serving Suggestion
Drink with a grilled Angus beef burger with beetroot and horseradish mayonnaise.
