The Laissez Fair Field Blend is Larry Cherubino's take on a hands-off Alsatian white blend. The 2016 vintage is a blend of Pinot Grigio, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Blanc and Sauvignon Gris from Pemberton in WA. These wines are made with the influence of natural, organic and minimalist winemaking. While Larry makes the point that he doesn't adhere to any dogma associated with these categories, the best parts of these winemaking philosophies are distilled into the Laissez Fair wines. This is fermented wild, unfined and unfiltered with several portions of the blend spend 5 days on skins to build texture and complexity. It's a very interesting take on this famous wine style. And one that can be enjoyed all year round.
What it Tastes Like
Slightly nutty whiffs with stone fruit, poached pears and apples dusted with nutmeg. Round and juicy fruit flavours and a tiny bit of grip. Finishes with an orange twist. Very interesting but easy drinking.
90 points. "Blend of pinot grigio, gewürztraminer, pinot blanc and sauvignon blanc from Pemberton in Western Australia. All wild fermented. As is always the case: gewürztraminer dominates. It adds lychee and Turkish delight characters to the nose and to the palate, a swing of citrus, stonefruit and nettle then rushing in to support. When I use the word ‘dominate’ what I really mean is that gewürztraminer leads the wine. Overall it feels well-balanced and composed, with ample flesh and vigour." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
Farmed without the use of sprays except for a minimal amount of copper which is acceptable by organic standards. Made naturally with no additions of any kind save for a small amount of sulphur at the bottling stage.
