A lovely expression of Pinot Noir with juicy Morello cherry fruit, gentle and silky in texture. Earthy beetroot, Morello cherry and hints of rose are supported by spicy oak aromas that follow onto the classic medium weight Pinot palate of lively fruit, gentle tannins and a moreish uplifting tang of acidity on the finish.

Producer Note
Named 'Winery of the Year' in James Halliday's 2011 Wine Companion, Larry Cherubino wants his wines to be distinctive and to speak clearly of their variety and vineyard site. He believes in spending time in the vineyard, in paying attention to canopy and water management and most importantly, picking at the right time with minimal intervention in the winery. From delicate whites to big reds, his wines have class and finesse. The prestigious Australian producer 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. Vintage
2015: Following on from an abundant winter and spring rainfall, the summer was almost completely dry, resulting in Porongorup and the surrounding areas experiencing a fairly low yielding season, with most grape varieties achieving ripeness at relatively low sugar levels. Vineyard
While inspiration has been taken from organics, biodynamics and natural winemaking practices, they are not dictated to by one school of thought, these are what could be called natural wines, but Larry Cherubino likes to think of them as "post natural" wines. Believing in healthy and sustainable vineyard practices, Larry Cherubino grows all his own grapes and can account for their provenance and natural status. Whilst copper is allowed in organic viticulture, minimal copper treatments are used here. The vines are approximately 20 years old and are grown in granitic soils. Winemaking
Laissez Faire means "let it be" and this is reflected in the hands-off approach of natural winemaking. The wine was made in small batches from hand-harvested grapes. Moderate extraction was aimed for, to ensure that the vineyard characters were fully expressed. The wine was matured in one year old oak for six months. Tasting Note
Earthy beetroot, Morello cherry and hints of rose are supported by spicy oak aromas that follow onto the classic medium weight Pinot palate of lively fruit, gentle tannins and a moreish uplifting tang of acidity on the finish. Serving Suggestion
Enjoy with barbecue chops and chargrilled vegetable or feta salads
