Tasting notes - Approachable, striking and modern, this red blend oozes complexity - with the Shiraz's earthiness tempering the Grenache's muskiness; and together they soften the subtle steeliness of the Mataro. Two may be company, but in this case three is perfection.Approachable, striking and modern, this red blend oozes complexity - with the Shiraz's earthiness tempering the Grenache's muskiness, which softens the Mataro's steeliness.

Medium bodied, this delicious wine has flavours of fresh
and juicy cherry and spicy plum. Rhône with an
Australian twist.
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 vineyard is located in the Frankland River area of the Great Southern, which is
considered to be one of the most distinctive viticulture areas in Australia. The flavour
of wines grown here comes from an ironstone based soil. These gravelly soils also line
the river valleys, rolling hills and lowlands. The vineyards are situated with a northern
orientation, optimising the long sunlight hours, which promotes ripening and
maturation of the grapes. The vines were planted in 1997, with 1,650 vines per
hectare.
Winemaking
The fruit was hand-picked and sorted, followed by fermentation in small lot
fermenters. A moderate extraction was aimed for, thus ensuring vineyard characters
were fully expressed. The wine was then aged in new and one year old oak, for six to
eight months.
Tasting Note
Approachable, striking and modern, this red blend oozes complexity - with the
Shiraz's earthiness tempering the Grenache's muskiness; and together they soften
the subtle steeliness of the Mataro. Two may be company, but in this case three is
perfection.
Serving Suggestion
Grilled red meats, barbequed food and gourmet sausages.
