Dormilona Chenin Blanc 2020
Chenin Blanc. Margaret River, W.A
Certified organic Chenin Blanc from Willyabrup. Hand harvested, whole bunch pressed direct to season french barrels. Battonage for three months then racked to settle before bottling.
It's a lovely, unique expression of this loveable variety, and if you like your whites with a bit of texture and oomph, then this will be right up your alley. Think honeydew and melons but finishing with a saline edge and enough acidity to keep structure. Delish.
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.
