Larry Cherubino Cherubino Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Beautifully textured and balanced, this wine is a lovely
combination of capsicum with hints of dark chocolate
mint and graphite but retaining a silky elegance. Lovely
fresh cool climate Cabernet.
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.
Vintage
A wet spring gave way to mild and dry conditions throughout the summer with a long,
slow ripening period. The red varietals show fine tannins and deep colours. This vintage
could go down as one of the best in the last 25 years for the Margaret River region.
Vineyard
The Margaret River wine region is located in Western Australia and in less than 50 years
has grown to become one of the world's great wine producing regions. The fruit is
grown in the Wilyabrup subregion, in a north facing vineyard, with lateritic, red loam
soils. The area is influenced by the Indian Ocean and this maritime climate lends itself
to ideal viticulture conditions, with cooling sea breezes mitigating the warm summer
temperatures. The vines were planted in 1998 onto their own rootstocks and at a
density of 1,666 vines per hectare.
Winemaking
The fruit was hand harvested, transported to the winery where it was cooled overnight
and then carefully sorted. Gentle maceration of the grapes was followed by
fermentation at temperatures ranging from 12 to 27°C. Fermentation lasted for
approximately six weeks, with minimal pump-overs. The wine was pressed to tank and
then allowed to settle for seven days, prior to oak maturation. A range of coopers were
used in the wine's development, imparting subtle complexity.
