About

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 organically 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 and terracotta pots.

It's a natural feeling Chardonnay of class and sophistication. An original and authentic take on a classic Australian wine staple. 

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

Peachy, sunny, lush Chardonnay with a roundness and cuddliness to the fruit. Grapefruit acidity and a little powdery grip through the mouth. Takes the slick fruit up a notch or two. Brilliant texture and weight without any heaviness. All the yeses here. - Different Drop Wine Team
