Larry Cherubino 'Laissez Faire' Riesling 2015, Porongorup

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

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

Following on from an abundant winter and spring rainfall, the 2015 summer was almost completely dry, resulting in Porongorup and the surrounding areas experiencing a fairly low yielding season, with most grape varieties achieving ripeness at relatively low sugar levels. Riesling led the way as the standout variety of the subregion.

Vineyard

The grapes are grown in a south facing vineyard in the Porongorup 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 vineyard is irrigated to achieve the optimal amount of moisture required.

Winemaking

With a focus on natural winemaking, this is made in small batches from hand harvested 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.

Serving Suggestion

Stunning with Prosciutto-wrapped tiger prawns and a pickled vegetable slaw.
