Dormilona Blanco 2019
Jo Perry might well be the hardest working young winemaker in Australia. Since first doing vintage work at Cape Mentelle as a teenager, study at Charles Sturt University was followed by 7 vintages in Spain managing two wineries, 15+ vintages in France, New Zealand and the US not to mention the last 14 vintages in Margaret River.
Her ironically named Dormilona label (‘lazy bones’ in Spanish) is at the forefront of natural, low intervention winemaking in Western Australia using almost no additions, no new oak and only sourcing organically farmed, biodynamically harvested grapes.
The 2019 Dormilona Blanco is a 100% Semillon from the Wallcliffe sub-region of Margaret River fermented using only natural yeasts, no oak and unfined and unfiltered. Apple, pear and lanolin on the palate with a wonderful crunchy texture to finish. A wonderful introduction to the world of natural wine.
