  • An elegant wine expression, with black cherry and red flowers complemented by subtle savory notes and beautifully integrated oak spice. Refined, soft tannins on the palate are balanced by fine acidity, through to black cherry and earthy flavors on the finish.
  • Shows that while we all know that Larry Cherubino is a dab hand with Chardonnay and Cabernet, as well as countless other varieties, he can also work his magic with the most fickle red grape of all, Pinot Noir. 2022 Foudre is blessed with gentle rose and raspberry fruit, and this unhurried wine shows delicious balance thanks to Italianate acidity, eight months in French oak foudres, and pinpoint accurate balance. This is not a rich, dark style but a light-hearted, refreshing, resonant style, and it sits shoulder-to-shoulder with some of the more recognized Pinots from Victoria and Tassie in this Report. The Riesling is the most decorated Laissez Faire wine in the history of 100 Best.

While inspiration has been taken from organics, biodynamics, and natural winemaking practices, the Laissez Faire range could be called natural wines; Larry Cherubino likes to think of them as "post-natural" wines. Believing in healthy and sustainable vineyard practices, Larry grows all his grapes and can account for their provenance and natural status. While copper is allowed in organic viticulture, minimal copper treatments are used here. The vines are grown in Channybearup in Pemberton, which is cooled by its proximity to the Southern Ocean. However, easterly winds that reach Pemberton have moved across more landmass, bringing much-needed heat for ripening. Planted on their rootstocks in 2004, the clone 667 Pinot Noir vines are planted at a density of 2,200 per hectare, in sandy loam soils. The fruit is hand-picked at optimal maturity.
