Vibrant Australian Riesling with typical pepper and citrus notes and a mouth watering, steely finish.
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.
A dry start to the winter was followed by timely spring rains. The summer was mild and dry which allowed the fruit to ripen very slowly, resulting in strong acidity levels for the whites and deep colours for the reds, with full flavours and lower sugar levels. 2018 could go down as one of the best in the last 25 years for the region.
The vines are grown in various sites across the Great Southern region in Western Australia, which are influenced by the warm easterly winds from the Great Australian Bight. The vines are all grown on their own rootstocks and the soil types vary, with each terroir imparting its own characteristic to the resulting wine.
Great attention was paid to harvesting dates along with gentle destemming and minimal use of sulphur. Only the free run portion of the juice from selected parcels was used for this wine, to ensure the elegance and purity of flavour was maintained.
