About The Wine
A beautifully different style of Margaret River Cabernet here from the 2016 Young Gun Winemaker of the Year, Josephine Perry.
There are few, if any, other winemakers in Margaret River that would dare release their Cabernet Sauvignon without any new oak, but that is precisely what Jo chooses for her own.
It's about fruit first and foremost, her trusting the vineyard and her instincts on when to pick to ensure that all structure in the wine is derived from the grape rather than an oak tree.
It's a gloriously feminine style of Cabernet - lifted and precise.
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.
