Dormilona Chardonnay

$54.63

With extensive winemaking experience in the new and old world (10 vintages in France, several years in the US, New Zealand and elsewhere in Australia, plus 7 years running 2 wineries in Spain and another in the Canary Islands.) winemaker Josephine Perry is a leader of Australia’s “new wave” of winemaking. Dormilona is a Spanish nickname for ‘lazy bones’ – Jo’s nickname for struggling to stay up for the late Spanish dinners.  Jo’s husband, Jim is a viticulturist and aside from farming their home block according to organic and biodynamic principles, is Jo’s eye’s for fruit selection across Margaret River.

This is how Erik Mercier of Juice Imports describes the Dormilona Chardonnay – “This Chardonnay comes from one of Jo’s favorite blocks in Wallcliffe. It is organically farmed and sees no watering. Whole-bunches are directly pressed into a combination of demi-muid, barrique, and terracotta. The wine goes through malolactic conversion before being racked and bottled with minimal Sulphur.”
