Tasting Notes

A pale, beautifully balanced Chardonnay with hints of vanilla on the nose and a winning cool climate acidity. Careful oak treatment has resulted in a wine of depth and balance.

Producer details

Named ‘Winery of the Year’ by James Halliday and Matt Skinner, Larry Cherubino wants his wines to be distinctive and to speak clearly of their variety and vineyard site. He believes in paying meticulous attention to the vineyard, canopy and water management, picking at the right time and minimal intervention in the winery. Larry also makes wine under the Laissez Faire label, an exquisite range of natural wines which are the ultimate expression of site, made in small batches from hand harvested grapes. From delicate whites to opulent reds, all his wines have pure class and finesse.

In the vineyard

The Chardonnay vines were planted in the Channybearup vineyard in 1999, which is located in Pemberton, Western Australia. The vines are planted to a density of 1,800 vines per hectare using Gin Gin clones onto their own rootstocks. Planted with a northern orientation, this maximises the sun's exposure to the vines and promotes even ripening, while irrigation ensures the optimum amount of water reaches the roots for growth. The soils are Genassic in formation.

In the winery

The fruit was hand-picked, whole bunched pressed and then fermented with natural yeasts. Once the fermentation was complete, the wine was aged in new and two year old oak, prior to being bottled.

Food Recommendations
