Larry Cherubino Laissez Faire Great Southern Riesling 2019

A funky lemon and lime sherbet style dry Riesling. Very
fresh and crisp with layers of waxy stone fruit and floral
notes finishing on a lovely almost toasty note.


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 grapes are grown in a south facing vineyard in the Porongurup sub region,
which was planted in 1998 at a density of 1,800 vines per hectare. The vines are all
on their own rootstocks. The soils are a sandy loam and the vineyard is irrigated to
achieve the optimal amount of moisture required.


Winemaking
With a focus on natural winemaking, this was made in small batches from handharvested grapes. The fruit was 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 a low temperature for six weeks.


Tasting Note
A bouquet reminiscent of red apple and white peach, with mineral overtones. White
stone fruit flavours follow through on the palate, with a subtle texture and a tight knit
acidity lingering in the background, which provides length and persistence.
