Larry Cherubino Hen and Chicken Chardonnay 2016
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 fruit was handpicked, whole bunch pressed fermented with natural yeasts and aged in new and 2-year-old French oak for 8 months with 80% malolactic fermentation.
Aromas of citrus and melon and the palate is soft and plush with a cleansing acid finish. Flavours of lemon butter complement the fruit and there are gentle spice and oak hints to add complexity.
Ideal with seafood risotto or lemon risotto.
