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.
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.
