About the Wine
Sauvignon Blanc is a great variety to experiment with. Winemaker, Jo Perry plays around with it a bit here, pushing this Sauvignon Blanc into the realm of the weird and wonderful.
The fruit is crushed straight into a combination of amphora and open top bins, then left to hang out of skins for a full six weeks before bottling. No fining. No filtration. No adds. Just the awesome raw essence of Sauvignon Blanc.
If you're in the market for crisp dry whites, you may want to look elsewhere. But if funky, textural wines with a wild personality are your thing, this is going to be right up your alley.
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.
