Larry Cherubino Middle of Everywhere Shiraz 2018 - 12 bottles for the price of 10
Named Winery of the Year in James Halliday's 2012 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, 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.
The fruit was de-stemmed only and fermentation was carried out after 2-3 days of pre-fermentation, cold maceration. Held on skins for 7-12 days the wine was pressed to 30% new and 2-year old French oak. The wine was prepared for bottling after 8 months in oak to preserve the freshness and intensity of the fruit.
Bright crimson in the glass, with a nose of blueberries, gentle spice and white pepper. On the palate, soft berry fruit with briary hints and nuances of aromatic spices of cinnamon and nutmeg. Medium-bodied, with a persistent finish.
