LARRY CHERUBINO AD HOC ‘Straw Man' Sauvignon Blanc Semillon, Margaret River 2014$0.00
Distinctive aromas of fresh straw and cut grass...and calling something out of Margaret River Grass Man would have been more trouble than it's worth.
THE VINTAGE: The 2014 warm summer cooled off in April, allowing fruit to ripen at a leisurely pace. The Margaret River region had an outstanding above average rainfall through the Winter and Spring months. Spring's exceptional conditions allowed the gentle warming and for fruit set. Continuing on with dry and warm days through to April provided excellent quality.
THE WINEMAKING: Fruit was harvested at night nefore crushing and de-stemming. Some skin contact was employed to extract flavour and texture from the fruit.
THE WINE: A pale straw-coloured wine showing complexity and vibrance. Aromas of straw and cut grass give way to a finely-layered pallet and long finish. A hint of tropical fruits on the palate together with natural crunchy acidity, balanced by a soft textural mouth-feel.
DRINK WITH: Grilled Swordfish, with a grapefruit, fennel and caper salad.
