Named Winery of the Year in James Halliday's 2011 Wine Companion, Larry Cherubino wants his wines to be distinctive and to speak clearly of their variety and vineyard site. He believes in spending time in the vineyard, in paying attention to canopy and water management, and most importantly, picking at the right time with minimal interference in the winery. From delicate whites to big reds his wines have class and finesse.
Fruit was harvested at night and gently de-stemmed. Only the free-run portion of the juice was used for this wine. Natural yeasts combined with, long cool fermentation at 10-12C ensured that the essence of the fruit was captured.
The Vintage: 2008 was a cool dry harvest with low to moderate yields. The resulting wines have very intense flavours and soft, gentle acidity.
Soft and approachable, with citrus and floral components. Textural, gentle minerality and a long clean dry finish.
