Ample flavours of blackcurrant and bay leaf are layered
with hints of cedar and chocolate mint on the palate
showing cool climate typicity.
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
The region experienced good winter and spring rainfall followed by a cool summer.
These factors resulted in a later than usual grape harvest. Yields were down, but quality
was generally excellent across both whites and reds.
Vineyard
The vineyard was planted in 1998 in Margaret River with 1,666 vines per hectare onto
their own rootstocks. The vineyard has a beautiful northern aspect maximising the sun's
exposure and promoting the ripening potential and concentration of flavours in the
grapes.
Winemaking
The fruit was hand-picked, sorted and crushed in static, stainless steel fermenters.
Fermentation lasted for three weeks with a very gentle maceration. The time on the
skins allowed for the softening of the tannins. The components were then aged for 10
months in a combination of new and one-to-two year old French oak barrels, prior to
blending and bottling.
Tasting Note
Inky purple, with classic Cabernet Sauvignon aromas of blackcurrant and bay leaf
layered with cedar and chocolate nuances. Showing lovely cool climate typicity, this is
medium bodied, with velvety soft tannins and a deliciously long finish.
