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 Margaret River saw excellent conditions throughout the 2016 season. The winter and spring months were dry, but good rainfall in January eased pressure bringing much needed moisture for vine growth and yields and help the grapes reach full maturity. The resulting wines are of excellent quality, whites have great verve and freshness and the reds are some of the best in recent memory.

Vineyard

The vineyard was planted in 1998 in Margaret River with 1,666 vines per hectare onto their own rootstocks. The vineyard has a beautiful northern aspect maximising the sun's exposure and promoting the ripening potential and concentration of flavours in the grapes.

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.
