Larry Cherubino Ad Hoc Wallflower Great Southern Riesling 2018

Vibrant Australian Riesling with typical pepper and citrus
notes and a mouth watering, steely finish.


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
A dry start to the winter was followed by timely spring rains. The summer was mild
and dry which allowed the fruit to ripen very slowly, resulting in strong acidity levels for
the whites and deep colours for the reds, with full flavours and lower sugar levels.
2018 could go down as one of the best in the last 25 years for the region.


Vineyard
The vines are grown in various sites across the Great Southern region in Western
Australia, which are influenced by the warm easterly winds from the Great Australian
Bight. The vines are all grown on their own rootstocks and the soil types vary, with
each terroir imparting its own characteristic to the resulting wine.


Winemaking
Great attention was paid to harvesting dates along with gentle destemming and
minimal use of sulphur. Only the free run portion of the juice from selected parcels
was used for this wine, to ensure the elegance and purity of flavour was maintained.


Tasting Note
Almost transparent in colour, this wine shows great purity and refinement. A fragrant
bouquet, with flavours of lemon peel and bath salts all carried along by a soft
texture, a long fine acidity and a persistent finish.
