I liked this naturally grown and made Cabernet from Josephine Perry’s small winery in Margaret River – yes, minimal intervention, wild fermentation in open vats, no additives apart from minimal sulphur in the winery, no fining or filtration. Sure, you must decant this style of wine before you get to see the elegant fruit, when the natural reduction whiffs have blown-off.  I drank it over 3 nights and loved the red and blue fruits and the silky tannin; finer than you expect from traditional cabernet sauvignon, but oh so pure and fresh. 13% alc.


Winery Note:


100% good old Cabernet Sauvignon from our little dry grown block in Wallcliffe. Hand picked, foot stomped, wild fermented in opens & post maceration for a three months. Then basket pressed & aged to perfection in seasoned French oak barriques. Only racked once and sulpured at bottling. No additives, fining, nor filtration to express the wonders of the land.

Details

So, here’s the little story of Dormilona (from the winery).

Dormilona is a product from my boutique contract winery & wine consulting services, Perryscope. We are a small batch wine producer from Margaret River, Western Australia, Jimmy & myself (Josephine Perry), plus our two little ones. We are all about the pursuit of creating amazing quality wines from organic & biodynamic fruit with no additives and very little intervention. We believe that this helps to express the vineyards character, the vintage and in return make tasty wines that are alternative in fashion & style. To put it simply, wines that are pure & beautifully created with loads of love & attention. So, no finings nor filtration & only minimal use of sulphur at bottling. Hence the name Dormilona, which means ‘lazy bones’ in Spanish. As it is a very laid back style of winemaking.
