A modern style Fiano - very bright with clean citrus flavours surrounding a core of mountain peach and ripe quince that leads to a lively 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.
From the Porongurup to Frankland, the 2016 vintage saw excellent conditions throughout the season. The winter and spring months were dry, but good rainfall in January eased pressure bringing much needed moisture for vine growth and yields. The resulting wines are of excellent quality, whites have great verve and freshness and the reds are some of the best in recent memory.
Planted in the Frankland River region in 2007, the Northern facing vineyard sits on lateritic soils. The bush pruned vines are on their own rootstocks.
The ultimate expression of natural winemaking made in small batches from handharvested grapes. The fruit was hand-picked and whole bunch pressed. The juice was then settled without the addition of enzymes, sulphur or acid. Once settled, it was allowed to ferment naturally at low temperature for six weeks. The wine was then bottled in the August of the same year.

This really shines with crispy chilli squid and steamed clams.
