The Cherubino range is the top of the pile for winemaker Larry Cherubino. He says that these wines represent the very best of what he does, which for a winemaker with his talent and experience, is quite something. The 2015 Margaret River Chardonnay is a thing of beauty. It walks that Chardonnay line of richness and elegance with aplomb. This wine received 96 points from James Halliday and in the heady world of premium Margaret River Chardonnay offers sensational value to premium buyers and an accessible price-point to the more modest Chardonnay drinker. Simply sublime.
What it Tastes Like
"A beautifully composed chardonnay, everything in the right place, and everything balanced. The fruit flavours span white stone fruit and pink grapefruit, none overt, and the acidity is neatly tucked in behind." - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)

About the Producer

Margaret River is recognised as one of the country’s finest wine growing regions. The quality of the region’s finest Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay rival the very best in the world. But Margaret River is no two-trick-pony. There, Tempranillo and Malbec are excelling, Touriga Nacional seems to be quite at home, Chenin Blanc is getting serious and even pockets of Nebbiolo are rearing their heads. Watch this space. Who knows what new surprises are just around the corner from this famous region.
Australian Chardonnay is a seductive variety that comes in all shapes and sizes. From the toasty and voluptuous to the lean, flinty and minerally, there is a Chardonnay out there to suit everyone. Australia’s developing prowess with this variety has been marked by the international community with wine writers such as Jancis Robinson marvelling at the outstanding value to be had right across the country. The prestige brands of Margaret River offer wines of deep flavour and power, often crafting fuller-figured Chardonnay of outstanding quality. The cooler-climate wines from the Yarra Valley, Tasmania and the like are more focused and linear, building complexity around a backbone of pristine acidity. Whatever your preference, there is an Australian Chardonnay to enchant all comers.
