Larry Cherubino Laissez Faire Foudre Pemberton Pinot Noir 2020

A complex Pinot Noir expression, showing black cherry
and strawberry notes with savoury undertones and
delicate hints of oak spice. Smooth, long and silky.
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 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 own 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.
Winemaking
Laissez Faire means "let it be" and this is reflected in the hands-off approach of
winemaking. The grapes were hand-harvested, sorted and naturally fermented with
indigenous yeasts. The wine spent six months maturing in French oak foudres, offering
optimal fruit expression and oak integration. As the name suggests, no additional
acids, enzymes or yeasts were added during vinification and the wine was not fined.
There was zero sulphur use throughout the winemaking and only minimal sulphur was
added at bottling.
Tasting Note
An elegant Pinot Noir expression, with black cherry and red flowers complemented by
subtle savoury notes and beautifully integrated oak spice. Refined, soft tannins on the
palate are balanced by a fine acidity, through to black cherry and earthy beetroot on
the finish.
