2012 Cherubino Laissez Faire Riesling

Larry Cherubino's Laissez Faire takes riesling where it seldom goes in Australia. He sources grapes from dry-grown bush vines at Porongurup (little more than a rocky knob in Western Australia's Great Southern wine region) and allows the wine to ferment naturally. The process mutes riesling's aromatic high notes, leaving the more citrus-like varietal characters intact. This citrus character provides a mouth-watering sensation on a richly textured, savoury, delicate and soft, dry palate.
