About

Sauvignon Blanc is a great variety to experiment with.

The Jo Perry plays around a bit here, pushing this Sauvignon Blanc into new territory for Dormilona.

The fruit is crushed straight into a combination of amphora and open top bins, then left to hang out of skins for a full month before bottling. No fining. No filtration. No adds. Just the awesome raw essence of Sauvignon Blanc.

If you’re in the market for crisp dry whites, you may want to look elsewhere. But if funky, textural wines with a wild personality are your thing, this is going to be right up your alley.

What It Tastes Like

This is Sauv Blanc on nitrous oxide. It’s pedal to the floor, passionfruit, green paw paw, jalapeño and mango. Loads of muth-filling phenolics littered amongst the fruit. All this craziness hangs on a thread of acid which keeps the story going in one direction. Great side a Sauv Blanc, here. Interest and drinkability in one.
