Highly acclaimed Western Australian wine maker Larry Cherubino dropped in today with some of his wines. His first eponymous wine was released in 2005 and now includes five wine ranges including Cherubino and Laissez Faire.
The Cherubino range was the first to land at Bacash, the Great Southern Riesling with its chalky minerality and zesty lemon and lime characteristics a great match for Bacash oysters. The Laissez Faire range reflects a hands off approach. A couple of years ago I had the Laissez Faire Porongrup Riesling and loved it, poured it by the glass in the restaurant.
Healthy and sustainable vineyard practices and transparent and hands off winemaking produce naturally balanced wines. We will be pouring the Laissez Faire 2016 Fiano from Frankland River. It’s a delicious textural wine with tastes and aromas of late seasons fruits but with long and fine acidity.
