To produce Riesling Ad Hoc Wallflower Larry Cherubino great attention was paid to harvesting dates along with gentle destemming and minimal use of sulphur. Only the free run portion of the juice from selected parcels was used for this Riesling Ad Hoc Wallflower Larry Cherubino, to ensure the elegance and purity of flavour was maintained.
The vines are grown in various sites across the Great Southern region in Western Australia, which are influenced by the warm easterly winds from the Great Australian Bight. The vines are all grown on their own rootstocks and the soil types vary, with each terroir imparting its own characteristic to the resulting wine.
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.
