Lovely toasty oak complemented by a complex,
balanced and layered mouthfeel showing hazelnuts
and a lovely freshness on the finish.
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.
Vineyard
Grown in the '24 Vineyard' in the Karridale subregion of southern Margaret River, the
vines were planted in 1988 at a density of 1,850 vines per hectare. The vines are
clone number 95 and are all grown on their own rootstocks. Situated facing a sunny,
northern aspect to maximise sun exposure the vines are influenced by cooling
breezes coming from the Southern Ocean, with warmer westerly breezes coming
from the Indian Ocean. It is one of the best examples of a maritime climate in
Australia.
Winemaking
The fruit was hand-picked and gently pressed directly to both new and one year old
French oak barrels. Vinified with minimal intervention, no additions were made to the
wine; it was naturally fermented using indigenous yeasts. The wine was rested on its
lees for eight months, adding texture and complexity, prior to being bottled.
Tasting Note
A focused, powerful and creamy wine. A layered and complex palate of spice, nuts,
stone fruit and green apple, which shows great balance and restraint.
Complemented by nuances of creamy oak, the elegant palate leads to a clean
and refined finish.
Serving Suggestion
Pan fried snapper, scallop risotto or barbecued crayfish.
