Cherubino Great Southern Riesling 2018
"Forged from equal shares of grapes grown in the Frankland River, Mount Barker and Porongurup. While boasting layers of citrus-based fruits, it has a delicious silver line of acidity giving it vibrant flavours now, and more to come over the next 10 or so years." 95 points, James Halliday, Wine Companion 2020
Chalky mineral aromatics with lemon and lime on the nose and a tight knit acidity with more chalky mineral flavours on the palate. Acidity is long and fine with a steely structure and long finish.

Vintage 2018 - Pale quartz-green; if ever a riesling was built for a very long future, this is it; ultra-careful selection of high quality grapes mean that Cherubino's role as a winemaker has been limited to ensuring the fermentation has left the wine bone dry, the magic coming from the fruit expression on the finish and the quite beautiful mouthfeel.
