RATED 5 STAR WINERY – James Haliday
“This is a picture perfect example of Margaret River Chardonnay, with nectarine, white peach and grapefruit crisscrossed with creamy/ figgy notes, on the one hand, citrusy acidity on the other; oak has simply been a means to an end” – Tyson Seltzer
This 2017 Pedestal Chardonnay is another top class Margaret River Chardonnay by Larry Cherubino. Aromas of lemon, peaches and tropical fruits give way to pure, clean flavours on the palate. Fine, persistent flavours with balanced acid and a long finish. An exceptionally elegant wine, showing the benefit of careful oak treatment.
Other comments: – Larry Cherubino’s Pedestal chardonnay shows the generous flavours of a warm season in Margaret River. Typical of a Cherubino wine, Pedestal seamlessly folds the fruit flavour together with the influences of fermentation with natural yeasts in new and used French oak barrels – followed by maturation in those barrels. The technique gives the wine a rich, silky texture to carry the beautiful fruit flavours satisfyingly across the palate – Chris Shannahan
