A beautiful lemon and lime sherbet style classic Riesling. Very fresh and crisp with layers of waxy stone fruit and floral notes finishing on a lovely almost toasty 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.
High rainfall over winter was followed by a very cool summer, with harvest being extended into mid-May. The dry, cool conditions helped yield some f the best Riesling, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon seen in many years. Fruit thinning was essential and in some cases many passes were made to get the crop loads balanced, but diligence and patience were rewarded.
The grapes are grown in a south facing vineyard in the Porongurup sub region, which was planted in 1998 at a density of 1,800 vines per hectare. The vines are all on their own rootstocks. The vineyard is irrigated to achieve the optimal amount of moisture required.
With a focus on natural winemaking, this is made in small batches from handharvested grapes. The fruit was 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 a low temperature for six weeks.

Stunning with Prosciutto-wrapped tiger prawns and a pickled vegetable slaw.
