About

About the Wine

'Dormilona' is Spanish for 'lazy bones', a reference to a nickname winemaker Jo Perry was given in Spain. With Jo's wines it also refers to her 'lazy' hands-off winemaking approach, and even her 'laziness' in taking so long to launch her own label. We're glad she got there in the end!

This is a super little wine. Really fun drinking. It's Semillon, organically grown from Jo's vineyard in Willyabrup, Margaret River with a little dash of Chenin Blanc thrown in for that little bit extra. It's hand-picked as always, with a little bit of whole bunch, skin contact, lees stirring and time in older oak adding oodles of texture to what is inherently pure and zippy Semillon fruit.

Terrific value for interesting, yet smashable, modern Margaret River wine.

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.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Lemony, waxy and grassy on the nose, with a racy, zippy, zingy palate of citrus and herbs. Nice texture worked in, some gentle phenolic grip too. Good complexity for the price and super refreshing! - Different Drop Wine Team

Additional Info

From the Producer

This is a racy little number will make you do a double take. A straight down the line Semillon with a touch of Chenin. Hand harvested from a little plot in Walllcilffe. A mix on whole bunch & skin contact, then basket pressed direct to tank. Battonaged with extra love for a couple of months before bottled. No additions, finings, or filtration to bottle. Only minimal sulphur.
