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 vineyards are located in the Great Southern region. Characterised by the
influence of the Southern Ocean, which provides breezes from the Antarctic, chilling
the grapes and making it an ideal growing climate for varietals that excel at these
lower temperatures. During mid January to February the evening temperatures
averages at 19°C, with an average of 310 mm rainfall during the growing season.
The vineyard sits on granite soils and is situated with a northern orientation which
optimises the long sunlight hours, promoting ripening and maturation of the grapes.
The vines were planted in 1997, at a density of 1,650 vines per hectare, with Riesling
and Gewürztraminer planted a stone's throw from each other in the same vineyard.


Winemaking
Grapes were carefully selected from various sites across the Great Southern region.
Great attention was paid to harvesting dates along with gentle destemming,
minimal use of sulphur and using the free-run juice from select parcels of fruit, which
ensured the elegance and purity of flavour was maintained.


Tasting Note
Riesling's cool lime and minerality meshes with Gewurztraminer's exotic spice and
rose water. The softly textured palate has a long, refreshing acidity supported by
citrus notes and rose petal on the finish.
