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
From Porongurup to Frankland River, conditions were excellent throughout the
season. The winter and spring lead-up were dry which was eased by good rainfall in
January, which brought much-needed moisture for vine growth and yields. As a
result the wines have great verve and freshness.


Vineyard
The fruit was selected and hand-picked from sites across Frankland River, Western
Australia. The vines were planted in 1997 to a density of 1,650 vines per hectare and
have a northern orientation, which maximises the exposure to the sun. Careful
irrigation ensures the vines are healthy. The soils are granite, which are known for
their heat retention properties and for promoting the even ripening of the berries.


Winemaking
The fruit was selected and hand-picked from sites across Frankland River.
Temperature controlled fermentation took place in small lot fermenters. Moderate
extraction was aimed for, ensuring the vineyard characters were fully expressed. The
wine was then aged in new and one year old oak, for six to eight months enhancing
the wine with a subtle oak complexity.


Tasting Note
Aromas of red earth, ground black spice and dark berries lead to a palate of fine,
silky tannins. Juicy fruit flavours of blueberry and dark cherry combine with
undertones of spice.
