Larry Cherubino Laissez Faire Frankland River Syrah 2019

Aromas of black olives combined with chocolate and
eucalyptus enhanced by an opulent texture with notes of
fresh herbs and oak spice, long and intensely flavoured.
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
Low rainfall in winter and spring, with some devastating frost events made the summer
ripening late. A tricky harvest to say the least, but patience (and a bit of luck) paid off
in the end, with some exceptional wines being the ultimate result.
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 grapes for this wine are grown in the subregions of Frankland River
which is considered to be one of the most distinctive viticulture areas in Australia.
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 in four year old French oak, prior to
bottling. As the name suggests, no additional acids, enzymes or yeasts were added
during vinification. There is zero sulphur use throughout the winemaking and only
minimal sulphur added at bottling.
Tasting Note
A bouquet of black cherries is enveloped in subtle mineral nuances and supporting
oak spice. Red flowery fruit flavours dominate, with subtle slate-like minerality following
through onto the elegant palate, all framed by fine tannins through to a long finish.
