About The Wine
Yokel is Jo's showcase for the great vineyards and fruit sources in the Swan Valley. A dollar from every bottle of Yokel sold goes to the Friends of the Western Swamp Tortoise, an initiative working to raise awareness of the critically endangered status of Australia’s rarest reptile, who finds its home in Swan Valley.
If Australian Verdelho has a home base, it's the Swan Valley. Jo takes this fruit from a dry-grown 80-year-old vineyard in the northern part of the region.
Some time on lees to build texture, but no other tinkering apart from that, this is a crisp, flavoursome Verdelho that is going to crush your thirst right the way through Summer.
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.
