LARRY CHERUBINO AD HOC ‘Wall Flower' Riesling, Mt Barker 2014$0.00
Because good wine doesn't have to scream its virtues. Sometimes shyness, delicacy and restraint are the signposts that lead to inner beauty.
THE VINTAGE: The Great Southern received a below average Winter rainfall, resulting in lower yeilds than in the previous vintage. A warmer January-Febraury saw mild and dry conditions, allowing the fruit to ripen through to late March.
THE WINEMAKING: Grapes were selected from various sites across the Great Southern. Great attention to harvest dates along with gentle de-stemming, minimal use of sulphur and using free-run juice from select parcels of fruit ensured the elegance and purity of flavour was maintained.
THE WINE: Almost transparent in colour, this wine shows great purity and refinement. A frangrant bouquet, with flavours of lemon peel and bath salts all carried along by a velvety texture and long fine acid.
DRINK WITH: Beer-battered whiting with tartare sauce and lemon.
