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
2020 saw a very dry winter and spring - the driest in 100 years. The warm, dry conditions
continued throughout summer. Good rainfall in February provided much-needed
moisture to relieve hydric stress. As a result, the crops were low, but the fruit has
produced exceptional whites and reds in 2020.
Vineyard
The Riversdale Vineyard was planted in the Frankland River region in 2007, with 1,800
vines per hectare. Frankland River soils are chiefly iron rich lateric gravelly or sandy
loams derived from granite or gneissic rocks, and so are typically red in colour and of
uniform depth. Some areas carry loams derived from the native Marri and Karri
eucalyptus forests. The river valley is a major influence and responsible for cool airflow.
There are only a handful of days that reach temperatures in the high 30°C . The mean
temperatures during the growing season are very mild and warm days are moderated
by the Albany Doctor (the sea breeze off the Southern Ocean), which can drop the
temperature from 30 to 15°C in a matter of hours. The bush vines are on their own
rootstocks and are irrigated when required to ensure optimum quality fruit.
Winemaking
The ultimate expression of natural winemaking made in small batches from handharvested grapes. The fruit was hand-picked and whole bunch pressed. The juice was
then settled without the addition of enzymes, sulphur or acid. Once settled, it was
allowed to ferment naturally at low temperature for six weeks in seasoned oak and
concrete eggs.
Tasting Note
Aromas of quince and white figs are complemented by hints of yellow peach, mineral
notes and subtle oak spices. The palate follows suit with flavours of peach and hints of
preserved lemon, the acidity is long and fine and wrapped in a soft texture.
