A complex, layered wine with pungent flavours of
goosberry, green pepper and passion fruit together with
a hint of oak adding great texture to the fruit, elegant
and vital.
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
Produced from the Channybearup vineyard in Pemberton, Western Australia.
Pemberton sits between the Great Southern and Margaret River and is a relatively
new wine region, following recommendations from the renowned Dr. John
Gladstone. The vineyard, which was planted in 1996, sits at an elevation of 60 metres
and has a north westerly orientation. Pemberton combines its southern latitude, with
high altitude and is influenced by the Southern Ocean. The winters are cold and
wet, while the summers are mild and dry with temperatures ranging from 10 to 30°C,
it has an ideal rainfall pattern for viticulture. The soils are Karri loams, which are deep,
well drained red soils with deposits of gravel. Pemberton is fast becoming one of the
ideal locations for white varieties.
Winemaking
Low crops and small bunches have yielded a wine of great intensity and texture. The
fruit was harvested in the cool of the night and was gently destemmed, with the
greatest care being taken to sort the best berries for this wine. Natural yeasts were
used and the wine underwent a long, cool fermentation at 10-12°C in new French
oak.
Tasting Note
A striking bouquet of nettle, minerals, blackcurrant and oak-infused spiciness. Made
in the traditional Bordeaux style, the wine was fermented in new French oak, adding
layers of complexity and flavour. A long, fine line of acidity provides great length and
finish.
Serving Suggestion
A great match for fresh gnocchi with basil pesto and pecorino cheese.
