About The Wine

This is Josephine Perry's most exquisite version of Cabernet Sauvignon, the one that speaks most eloquently of her Wallcliffe vineyard in Margaret River.

This is Cabernet handpicked at perfect ripeness, foot-stomped and left to soak on skins for five months in amphora, then basket pressed and settled for a further three months in a large clay pot.

This is one of the purest examples of top-end Margaret River Cabernet you are likely to find. No additions bar a dash of SO2 to stabilise the wine in bottle. Courageous winemaking and whole-hearted trust in the quality of her fruit conspiring here into one of the region's most idiosyncratic and delicious Cabernet wines.

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 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.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Margaret River Cabernet doesn't come much more elegant than this. Or more dynamic. There's a raw energy to the fruit but it's all tucked in so neatly. Blackberry and dried leaves, some red fruit and a a beautiful mineral tannin. It's soft and seductive, gorgeous in lifted violets and regional bay leaf scents. Supreme drinking. It a wine you want to sit back and admire but are constantly compelled to the glass. A thing of Beauty. Kudos, Jo. - Different Drop Wine Team

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts?

No our pricing is aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
