Larry Cherubino Ad Hoc Mix Master 2008

Member Review by Terence Pang:

AUD$17. This is a Merlot Shiraz blend with fruit from Pemberton and Frankland river. The wine was matured for 11 months in new and used French oak. Intense ruby-crimson colour. A lifted, youthful nose of blackcurrant and raspberry coulis, red plums with a faint saltish note. A medium- bodied wine, moderate acidity with soft cushy tannins. 14% alc but it certainly doesn’t feel close, more like 12.5%. This is a wine for a mildly sunny afternoon, with chicken caesar salad with cayenne mayo. Lingering plum and dark berry flavours, this wine needs food with chilli spice as a final kicker. Drink now.
