Cabernet Sauvignon

75cl * 13.5% ABV * Margaret River, Western Australia

The 'Cherubino' range from Larry Cherubino, celebrates and expresses the greatest parcels of land in the vineyards and the most dedicated of the wineries capability in winemaking. These wines represent the top 1% of Larry Cherubino's production and are the signature range, a sign of their best work.

The 2019 vintage was difficult to say the least. Low rainfall in winter and spring led to severe frosts before summer. As a result, the ripening was late and the harvest was a struggle. Patience paid off, this inky black Cabernet is indulgent with some green notes in what is otherwise a concentrated wine, reminiscent of a classic Bordeaux. Bay leaf, earthy notes and some fine tannins are supported by intense black fruit characteristics. Oak has been used but it is wonderfully integrated.

A lovely bit of roasted lamb will pair beautifully with this delicious Cabernet. A stone-baked pizza or a ragu are great pairings, as is some mature cheese, like Stilton or a Golden Cross goats cheese from Sussex.
