2016 Larry Cherubino Porongurup Riesling

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2016 Vintage) says
Made from the best blocks of the Cherubino vineyard in Porongurup, this is a Riesling all about finesse, purity and Porongurup's regional stamp. The bouquet has a haunting touch of crushed sea shell, the palate rapidly building a stream of lime zest, green apple and a savoury touch on the banks of that stream. As with all top class Rieslings, acidity is the glue that binds.

Huon Hooke (2016 Vintage) says
Very pale, almost completely colourless appearance. The bouquet is very shy and restrained, but shows some malty savoury, possibly oxidative winemaking touches. It's not fragrantly floral or citrusy - as in a traditional, protectively-made Aussie Riesling. The finish is clean, soft and dry. Again, typically with this maker, the acidity is not lacking but is seamless and anything but shrill.
2019 - 2031
James Halliday (2015 Vintage) says
Bright straw-green; a picture-perfect riesling at the start of a long and prosperous life; the bouquet is as yet reticent, but the palate is ready to do business on Porongurup's terms. Citrus, pear and apple are the spearhead, crunchy acidity the defence at the rear. To be left for as long as you possibly can.

James Halliday (2013 Vintage) says
Quartz white; while the regional origin is the same as the Laissez-Faire, and the sense of place is thus obvious, this is a wine of exceptional intensity and length, effortlessly delivering its array of lime, mineral and lemon (in that order) on a perfectly balanced palate.
James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
Pale quartz-green; if ever a Riesling was built for a very long future, this is it; ultra-careful selection of high-quality grapes means that CherubinoÍs role as a winemaker has been limited to ensuring the fermentation has left the wine bone dry, the magic coming from the fruit expression on the finish and the quite beautiful mouthfeel.
Australian Wine Companion 2014 Edition 2013
Tyson Stelzer (2011 Vintage) says
Great Southern riesling has transcended a new stratosphere of longevity. Never before has it reached such heights of razor-cut linearity, white knuckle purity or dateline-traversing persistence.
