Larry Cherubino Frankland River Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

  • Grapes Cabernet Sauvignon 100%
  • Country Australia
  • Region Western Australia
  • Abv 14 %
  • Case size 12/ 75cl
  • Inky black, with strong, classic bay leaf and earthy tones. Integrated oak neatly frames the intense fruit. This is focussed and textured, with very fine tannins. Larry’s Frankland River Cabernet template into a wholly different level of excellence. The fruit is so resonant and bright it is shocking, and this gloriously luxurious flavor attack is underpinned by brutal, singular minerality that is at once awe-inspiring and not a little malevolent. The back end is sour, dense, structured, ripe, cool, powerful, muscular, and brittle, arming this wine for the long run. It is like an intergalactic excavator has scooped up a large tract of Saint-EstEphe and deposited it among the karri trees in the southwest corner of Western Australia. 

The grapes were grown in the Riversdale Vineyard in Frankland River in Western Australia. The vines were planted between 1996 and 1998 at a density of 1,650 vines per hectare. The vines are Houghton clones and are planted on their own rootstocks with a southerly aspect. Frankland River soils are chiefly iron-rich lateritic gravelly or sandy loams derived from granite or gneissic rocks and are typically red in color with a uniform depth. Some areas carry loams derived from the native Marri and Karri eucalyptus forests. The river valley is a major influence and is responsible for cool airflow. The average growing temperatures are very mild and the warm days are moderated by the Albany Doctor - a sea breeze from the Southern Ocean.

Inky black, the wine has strong classic bay leaf and earth cabernet tones. Very focused, mouth filling with very fine tannins. Oak is supporting the intense fruit.

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.

The fruit was hand harvested and transported to the winery where it was cooled overnight and hand sorted. Maceration lasted for six weeks with minimal pump overs and temperatures ranging for 12-27C. The wine was pressed to tank and allowed to settle for 7 days prior to oak maturation. A range of coopers were used in the wine’s development.
