Larry Cherubino Laissez Faire Field Blend 2017

The Laissez Faire Field Blend from Larry Cherubino is a delightful blend of Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Riesling and Sauvignon Gris. These white grape verietals combine wonderfully to produce an exotic mix of flavours and sensations. This wine is superb when served with Thai green curry or grilled haloumi.

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

The 2014 warm summer cooled off in early March, allowing fruit to ripen at a leisurely pace. Pemberton wine region had an outstanding above average rainfall through the Winter and Spring months. Spring's exceptional conditions allowed the gentle warming and for fruit set. Continuing on with dry and warm days through to April provided excellent quality with incredibly fresh and vibrant wine from the region.

Vineyard

Whilst inspiration has been taken from organics, bio-dynamics and natural winemaking practices, they are not dictated to by one school of thought, these are what could be called natural wines, but Larry Cherubino likes to think of them as "post natural" wines. Believing in healthy and sustainable vineyard practices, Larry Cherubino grows all his own grapes and can account for their provenance and natural status. Whilst copper is allowed in organic viticulture, minimal copper treatments are used here. The irrigated vines were planted in 1998 invarious vineyard sites, specifically chosen to suit the variety, given the aspect, micro climate and soil compositions. The vines are planted to a density of 1600 vines per hectare, with various clones having been selected, they are all grown on their own root stocks.

Winemaking

Laissez Faire means "let it be" and this is reflected in the hands-off approach of wiemaking. As the name suggests, the grapes selected for this Field Blend were harvested at the same time and blended in the field. The fruit was then gently de-stemmed, then several parcels were allowed to ferment naturally on their skins for a period of five days. No additives, sulphites, acids or enzymes were added during the vinification of this blend, with only minimal sulphur added at bottling.

Tasting Note

Floral blend of Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Riesling and Sauvignon Gris, all lend itself to an exotic cacophony of passion fruit, rose petal and lychee. A gentle hint of oak adds texture and weight to the long finish.

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.
