Larry Cherubino Laissez Faire Riesling 2018

The Laissez Faire Riesling from Larry Cherubino is a truly delicious example of Riesling wine. This is a completely dry white wine with spectacular aromas and flavours of lemon and lime sherbet mixed with fabulous acidity and minerality. This white wine willl have you reaching for another glass quicker than a wink!

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 the fruit to ripen at a slow and even pace. The Porongurup (Great Southern) region had above average rainfall through the winter and spring months. Spring's exceptional conditions allowed for gentle warming and fruit set. Continuing warm weather through to April provided excellent fruit.

Vineyard

The grapes are grown in a south facing vineyard in the Porongurup sub region, which was planted in 1998 to adensity of 1800 vines per hectare. The vines are of unknown clones but they are on their own root stocks. The vineyard is irrigated to achieve the optimal amount of moisture required.

Winemaking

The ultimate expression of natural winemaking made in small batches from hand-harvested grapes. The fruit was whole bunch pressed. The juice was then settled without the addition of enzymes, sulphur or acid. Once settled, it was allowed to ferment naturally at low temperature for six weeks. The wine was then bottled in the August, of the same year.

Tasting Note

A beautiful lemon and lime sherbet style Riesling. Very fresh, crisp with textured minerality that adds complexity and grip. Moderate alcohol and a refreshing lip-smacking finish.

Serving Suggestion

Stunning with Prosciutto-wrapped tiger prawns and a pickled vegetable slaw.

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.
