 Larry Cherubino 'Ad Hoc Middle of Everywhere', Frankland River, Shiraz 2017

A chunky Australian Shiraz with blackberry and chocolate flavours enhanced by fresh herbal notes and a spicy, long finish.

Producer Note

Named ‘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

From Porongurup to Frankland River, conditions were excellent throughout the season. The winter and spring lead-up were dry which was eased by good rainfall in January, which brought much-needed moisture for vine growth and yields. As a result the wines have great verve and freshness.

Vineyard

The fruit was selected and hand-picked from sites across Frankland River, Western Australia. The vines were planted in 1997 to a density of 1,650 vines per hectare and have a northern orientation, which maximises the exposure to the sun. Careful irrigation ensures the vines are healthy. The soils are granite, which are known for their heat retention properties and for promoting the even ripening of the berries.

Winemaking

The fruit was selected and hand-picked from sites across Frankland River. Temperature controlled fermentation took place in small lot fermenters. Moderate extraction was aimed for, ensuring the vineyard characters were fully expressed. The wine was then aged in new and one year old oak, for six to eight months enhancing the wine with a subtle oak complexity.

Tasting Note

Aromas of red earth, ground black spice and dark berries lead to a palate of fine, silky tannins. Juicy fruit flavours of blueberry and dark cherry combine with undertones of spice.

Serving Suggestion

Delicious with slow cooked meats and hard cheese.
