About The Wine

There's some very good Chenin Blanc fruit growing in Margaret River and a few producers now looking to up the ante and make a more premium, 'fine wine' version of the grape. 

Here Jo Perry takes Chenin Blanc into brave new territory. This is biodynamic fruit fermented in large terracotta pots, left to naturally go through malo, pressed and then sent back to the pot to chill before being racked straight to bottle.

No fining, no filtration, just the watchful eye of Jo Perry bringing it to bottle. It's funky and cloudy, Chenin's texture dialled up to 11. 

Wicked wine here. A different side of Chenin Blanc and a fun one at that.

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.

DDS review

Bring on the funk. This is all cloudy apples and pears, honey and white flowers, a tasty line of saline acidity and all the leesy chew you could want. Yum. Full throttle Chenin here. Very cool. - Different Drop Wine Team
