Tasting notes - Approachable, striking and modern, this red blend oozes complexity - with the Shiraz's earthiness tempering the Grenache's muskiness; and together they soften the subtle steeliness of the Mataro. Notes of rose petal, musk and plum prelude a medium bodied palate with vibrant berry flavours and fine tannins underpinned by a cleansing acidity.

Larry Cherubino Apostrophe Possessive Red Great Southern 2019

Medium bodied, this delicious and fleshy wine has
flavours of fresh and juicy cranberry and blackberry with a
herbal and smoky bacon tang. Rhône with a silky
Australian twist.


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
The vineyard is located in the Frankland River area of the Great Southern, which is
considered to be one of the most distinctive viticulture areas in Australia. The flavour of
wines grown here comes from a granite based soil. These gravelly soils also line the river
valleys, rolling hills and lowlands. The vineyards are situated with a northern orientation,
optimising the long sunlight hours, which promotes ripening and maturation of the
grapes. The vines were planted in 1997, with 1,650 vines per hectare.


Winemaking
The fruit was hand-picked and sorted, followed by fermentation in small lot fermenters.
A moderate extraction was aimed for, thus ensuring vineyard characters were fully
expressed. The wine was then aged in new and one year old oak, for six to eight
months.
