About

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.

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.

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 is bringing an alt-styling to the way she produces the hero varieties of this famous region.

These are Margaret River 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.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Classic Margaret River Cabernet through a soft veil. It's all mulberries and red currants, bay leaf, deep pools of lush fruit and fine trimmed tannins. There's an ease and grace to the wine. Feels composed and effortless. Gentle push of pleasing drying tannin through the long breezy finish. Moreish Cabernet, both regional and unique. - Different Drop Wine Team
