  • 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.

    Soil

    Vinification
    Harvested at night, then gently de-stemming the grapes by hand ensures only the very best fruit is chosen for this wine. Only the free run portion of the juice was used for this wine. All natural yeasts combined with long, cool fermentation at 10-12 degrees - ensured that the essence of the fruit was captured.

    Grape
    Riesling 100%

  • 95 James Halliday - The Riversdale Vineyard was planted in '97 on the banks of the Frankland River. Pale quartz-green, and has a particular complex bouquet and equally complex palate that fills the mouth with a wondrous array of citrus, apple and nashi pear fruit, sustained and lengthened by inbuilt acidity.
