Cherubino Great Southern Riesling 2018
Larry Churbino and wife Edwina dreamt of owning their own vineyard and purchased their first parcel of land in Frankland River in 2004. Larry Cherubino Wines began in their spare room in 2005 with the release of one wine before an impressive and rapid growth led to several Winemaker of the Year awards. This vintage of the spicy, much adored Cherubino Great Southern Riesling won gold at the Wine Show of Western Australia and scored a 96-point rating from wine critic Matt Skinner and ready for you to judge and enjoy.
A refined, steel-spined vintage of Cherubino Great Southern Riesling with fresh, crisp notes of pear, citrus and white flowers with faint dustings of cinnamon. The finish is dry and superbly long, showing just the right amount of acidity. An excellent and versatile food wine, this Riesling will pair especially well with a cheese and fruit platter.

Vintage 2018 - Pale quartz-green; if ever a riesling was built for a very long future, this is it; ultra-careful selection of high quality grapes mean that Cherubino's 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.
