Producer Note
Former ‘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
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 own grapes and can account for their provenance and
natural status. While copper is allowed in organic viticulture, minimal copper treatments
are used here. The irrigated vines were planted in 1998 in various vineyard sites,
specifically chosen to suit the variety, given the aspect, microclimate and soil
composition. The vines are planted to a density of 1,600 vines per hectare, with various
clones having been selected; they are all grown on their own rootstocks.
Winemaking
Laissez Faire means "let it be" and this is reflected in the hands-off approach of
winemaking. As the name suggests, the grapes selected for this Field Blend were
harvested at the same time and blended in the field. The fruit was gently destemmed,
then the parcels were allowed to ferment naturally on their skins for a period of five
days. No additives, sulphites, acids or enzymes were added during the vinification of
this blend, with only minimal sulphur added at bottling.

water. Layers of pear, nougat, Turkish delight are interwoven on the soft and refined
palate through to a long finish with a subtle but drying acidity.
