Just when you thought Margaret River was becoming a little predictable (predictably good, mind you), along come new producers like Dormilona. Current Young Gun of Wine winemaker, Jo Perry, strives to create "amazing quality wines from organic & biodynamic fruit with no additives and very little intervention." Amen. So onto this wine, an organically farmed Chenin Blanc from a small vineyard in Willyabrup, Margaret River. Jo and her viticulturist partner Jim have got their priorities right, focusing first and foremost on sourcing high quality, pure fruit, before worrying about what to do with it in the winery. The fruit is hand-picked and whole bunch pressed straight into barrel for wild ferment, where it sits on its lees before being bottled with no fining or filtration. It's a lovely, unique expression of this controversial variety, and if you love your whites with a bit of texture and oomph, and this will be right up your alley.

What it Tastes Like

Really jumps out of the glass with bright citrus, vanilla, and a bit of peaches and cream. More exuberant apples and lemons on the palate with razor sharp acid balanced by some nice, soft creaminess. Hints of toast and honey too. Fascinating drinking!
