Dormilona Chardonnay 2020
Chardonnay. Margaret River, W.A
Lets roll in the hay with Chardonnay.Hand harvested from the Burnside vineyard in Wallciffe sub region, whole bunch pressed into amphora & a big 600L oak barrel. Natural ferment plus malo then simply racked to bottled on a stunning fruit day. Super classy & elegant wine, an original take on a classic Aussie wine staple.
All the way from Margaret River, W.A Dormilona are produced by a self confessed “lazy bones” winemaker, Josephine Perry. Referring to Jo’s low intervention approach to wine making, rather than her work ethic, she is very similar to me in that she is a one woman show ( whilst being a young mum ) and she chooses to focus her energy on the quality of the fruit that she brings into the winery. Using only organically and biodynamic fruit from vineyards across the Margaret River & Swan Valley, Jo creates natural wines from hero varieties from region such as Chardonnay & Cab Sauv, that have flair and originality. These are Jo’s babies, that’s she handcrafts with so much love and care & you can really taste it in every glass.
