Larry Cherubino Apostrophe Stones Throw White 2019

The Apostrophe Stones Throw from Larry Cherubino is a delightful blend of Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Chardonnay and a touch of Sauvignon Blanc. This is a bit of a mad blend when you think about it but the flavours combine beautifully to produce a wine that is spectacular with Asian cuisine.

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. The prodigious Australian producer also makes wine under the Laissez Faire name. These are a range of natural wines, and they are the ultimate expression of natural winemaking made in small batches from hand-harvested grapes.

Vintage

Yields were lower than most years, due to wind and rain during flowering coupled with the lack of Indian summer that usually occurs in this region. However, the fruits that were picked were of excellent quality, resulting in crisp and refreshing wines.

Vineyard

The vineyards are located in the Great Southern region. Characterised by the influence of the Southern Ocean, which provides breezes from the Antarctic, it chills the grapes and makes it an ideal growing climate for varietals that excel at these lower temperatures. From mid-January to February, the evening temperatures averages at19°C, with an average of 310mm rainfall during the growing season. The vineyards sit on gravelly soils and are situated with a northern orientation that optimises the long sunlight hours, promoting the ripening and maturation of the grapes. The vines were planted in 1997, with 1650 vines per hectare.

Winemaking

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

Tasting Note

Growing up a Stone's Throw away on the same vineyard, it is little wonder that these two are fast friends. Riesling's cool minerality meshes with Gewürztraminer's exotic spice and rose water, in this delicious, refreshing blend.

Serving Suggestion

Serve chilled as an inviting apéritif or delicious with lightly spiced Asian cuisine.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
