Larry Cherubino Pedestal Cabernet Merlot 2019.

The Pedestal Cabernet Merlot from Larry Cherubino is a classic example of this popular red wine blend from Australia. With the grapes hand harvested and the juices aged for a period of time in oan casks the resulting wine is intense in flavour but medium bodied and silky smooth.

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 April, allowing the fruit to ripen at a leisurely pace. Frankland River had an outstanding, above-average rainfall throughout the winter and spring months. Spring's exceptional conditions allowed gentle warming for fruit set. The dry, warm days continued until April, which provided excellent quality yields with incredibly fresh and vibrant fruit from the region.

Vineyard

The vineyard was planted in 1998 in Margaret River with 1666 vines per hectare onto their own rootstocks.The vineyard has a beautiful northern aspect maximising the sun's exposure and promoting the ripening potential and concentration of flavours in the grapes.

Winemaking

The fruit was hand-picked, sorted and crushed in static, stainless steel fermenters. The alcoholic fermentation lasted for three weeks with a very gentle maceration. The time on the stems allowed for the softening of the tannins. The components were then aged for 10 months in a combination of new and one-to-two year old French oak barrels, prior to blending and bottling.

Tasting Note

Showcasing the best of the Margaret River region, this deep, inky purple wine shows intense classic Cabernet aromas of blackcurrant. Ample notes of blackcurrant and bay leaf are layered with hints of cedar and chocolate on the palate. Medium bodied, this wine has velvety soft tannins and a long smooth finish.

Serving Suggestion

Ideal with a chargrilled rump with roasted bone marrow, or dishes with dark Portobello mushrooms and baked aubergines.

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.
