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
2016: From the Porongorup to Frankland, conditions were excellent throughout the
season. The winter and spring lead-up were dry, which was eased by good rainfall
during January. This brought much needed moisture for vine growth and yields. The
whites have great verve and freshness.
Vineyard
The grapes are sourced from single vineyard sites in Channybearup, Riversdale,
Justin and Acacia within the Frankland River region. The vines were planted in 1998
on their own rootstocks, in soils that are generally lateritic.
Winemaking
The grapes were harvested at night, then whole bunch pressed. Only the free run
portion of the juice was used for this wine. Natural yeasts were utilised and the wine
was bottled immediately after long, cool fermentation to ensure the vibrancy and
freshness of the wine was captured.
Tasting Note
A light, straw-green wine with a purity to the bouquet. Layers of lime leaf and
crystallised citrus notes lead to a thread of lime and mineral notes, which carry
through to the finish.
Serving Suggestion
The perfect match for Gravlax.
