James' Review

Larry Cherubino has had a particularly distinguished winemaking career, first at Hardys Tintara, then Houghton, and thereafter as consultant/Flying Winemaker in Australia, NZ, South Africa, the US and Italy. He has developed three ranges: at the top is Cherubino (Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon); next The Yard, five single-vineyard wines from WA; and at the bottom the Ad Hoc label, all single-region wines. The range and quality of his wines are extraordinary, the prices irresistible. The runaway success of the business has seen the accumulation of 120ha of vineyards, the appointment of an additional winemaker and Larry's own appointment as Director of Winemaking at Robert Oatley Vineyards. The delphic one-liners on the back labels are a further challenge. Exports to the UK, the US, Canada, Ireland, Switzerland, Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore, China and NZ.

About this winery

Larry Cherubino Wines was only established in 2005, but the significant success we’ve achieved is the culmination of more than 20 years’ observation and work, both in Australia and across the major wine-producing regions of the world.

Simplicity in winemaking requires great attention to detail in the vineyard, an uncompromising approach fruit selection and uncomplicated winemaking, all framed by a kind season. The sum of these things lies within each bottle of wine we make.

Larry is renowned for his passionate commitment to maximising wine quality in both vineyard and winery, his state of the art technical knowledge and for having a highly developed understanding of modern wine styles. A graduate of Roseworthy College, Larry has had a distinguished career with BRL Hardy at Tintara in South Australia and then at Houghton in Western Australia, where his wines won hundreds of awards in the highly competitive Australian and International wine show system.

Specialties

At Larry Cherubino Wines, we make uniquely West Australian wines of great depth, detail and purity, true to their provenance.

Our first wine, a single vineyard Frankland River, was released in 2005. Our focus continues to be on sub-regional and single vineyard wines, and today we make more of these than any other producer in Western Australia.

While the winemaking process itself may seem quite simple, the key to the quality of our wines is how we select fruit. The search for grapes with personality and unique traits is so important, and so tied to region and site, that much of Larry’s time is spent just hunting for these qualities.

Our fruit is sourced from vineyards throughout the southern half of Western Australia, with a particular focus on the Great Southern and its sub-regions of Porongurup and Frankland River. Pemberton and Margaret River are also major players in the make-up of our regional single vineyard wines.

All our wines are carefully crafted to reflect a true sense of place, and to express the fruit at its finest and most unequivocal.
