Such a beautiful, pure-feeling carriage of flavour. Classy as.

About the Wine

Jo Perry's 'lazy bones' winemaking style is yielding some excellent results in Chardonnay from Margaret River.

This is fruit picked from Jo's naturally farmed vineyard in the Wallcliffe sub-region. It shows pure, persistant fruit, with only the suggestion of support from a demi-muid and some older barriques.

It's a natural feeling Chardonnay of utter class and sophistication. An original and authentic take on a classic Australian wine staple. Mike Bennie rated the 2016 94 points, this is a gorgeous Chardonnay.

About Dormilona

Josephine Perry is one of the most exciting emerging producers in Margaret River. Her Dormilona label is setting a new tone for the region. She is focusing on sourcing organically and biodynamically grown fruit, making wine with as little intervention as possible, and bringing an alt-styling to the hero varieties of this famous region.

These are Margaret River wines with flair and originality. The quality of her releases was vindicated with her winning the 2016 Young Guns of Wine Winemaker of the Year. Jo's is a star on the rise as the scarcity and want for her colourful range increases year on year.

The Wine Front

"One of those exquisite, clear perfumes, fresh cut stone fruit, marzipan, blanched almonds and faint seaspray. Glossy texture, intense grapefruit-apple orientate flavours. So very silky through its finish then mouth-watering. Such a beautiful, pure-feeling carriage of flavour. Classy as." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
