Larry Cherubino Cherubino River's End Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Indulge in Larry Cherubino's lavish, layered "seemingly impossible" (Halliday) 95pt Cabernet
Already a celebrated winemaker, Larry Cherubino founded his own company in 2005. Just six years later he took home Halliday’s ‘Winery of the Year’. “Larry’s day job (as he calls it) has been that of a consultant in the broader sense, and winemaker (for others) in the narrower sense. This, he says, allows him the luxury of making small batches of exquisite (my word, not his) wines under the Larry Cherubino label” (Halliday). Larry’s success and immense acclaim can be attributed to his definitive “focus on single vineyard and single vineyard wines” – like this outstandingly aromatic, layered Cabernet.
“Hand-picked, cooled overnight,
6 weeks maceration/fermentation with minimal pumpovers. A full-bodied cabernet that catches you gently, the answer to the seemingly impossible coming from a blend of Frankland
River and Margaret River fruit, and
the very long maceration that leads
to polymerisation (softening) of the tannins ... 95 points” (Halliday).
