Cherubino Laissez Faire Riesling 2021

CLFR21

New product

A bouquet reminiscent of red apple and white peach, with mineral overtones. White stone fruit flavours follow through on the palate, with a subtle texture and a tight knit acidity lingering in the background, which provides length and persistence.

More info

The grapes are grown in a south facing vineyard in the Porongurup sub region, which was planted in 1998 at a density of 1,800 vines per hectare. The vines are all on their own rootstocks. The soils are a sandy loam and the vineyard is irrigated to achieve the optimal amount of moisture required. Sustainable vineyard practices are employed throughout the vineyard, with minimal copper use and their own compost is used to retain biodiversity and a healthy ecosystem. No herbicides are used.

With a focus on natural winemaking, this was made in small batches from hand harvested grapes. The fruit was whole bunch pressed. The juice was then settled without the addition of enzymes, sulphur or acid. Once settled, it was allowed to ferment naturally at a low temperature for six weeks.
