Larry Cherubino Cherubino Margaret River Chardonnay 2020

Lovely toasty oak complemented by a complex,
balanced and layered mouthfeel showing hazelnuts and
a lovely freshness on the finish, elegant and full-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.
Vineyard
Grown predominantly in the '24 Vineyard' in the Karridale subregion of southern
Margaret River, the vines were planted in 1988 at a density of 1,850 vines per hectare.
The vines are clone number 95 and 96 and are all grown on their own rootstocks.
Situated facing a sunny, northern aspect to maximise sun exposure the vines are
influenced by cooling breezes coming from the Southern Ocean, with warmer westerly
breezes coming from the Indian Ocean. It is one of the best examples of a maritime
climate in Australia.
Winemaking
The fruit was hand-picked and gently pressed directly to 60% new French oak, 40% one
year old French oak barrels from a combination of forests- Vosges, Troncais and Allier.
The juice was vinified with minimal intervention, no additions were made to the wine; it
was naturally fermented using indigenous yeasts. 10% went through malolactic
conversion. The wine was matured on its lees for eight months, adding texture and
complexity, prior to being bottled.
Tasting Note
A focused, powerful and creamy wine with aromas of roasted nuts, peach and sweet
citrus blossom complemented by complex oak spice. Citrus flavours and fine minerality
lead to a refreshing finish.
