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.
Josephine Perry is one of the most exciting emerging producers in Margaret River. Her Dormilona label is setting a new tone for the region.
A self-confessed 'lazy-bones' winemaker, Jo is low-intervention in the winery, instead focusing her energies on the quality of fruit that she brings in the winery.
She uses only organically and biodynamically farmed fruit from high-quality vineyards across Margaret River and the Swan Valley and is bringing an alt-styling to the hero varieties of the west.
These are natural wines with flair and originality. From vineyard to glass, Jo handcrafts each wine with love and tender hands. An authentic producer who's rightfully gaining plenty of attention.
