Its a limited range of project wines hand made in pure terracotta amphora pots. Dry grown from our single vineyard plot in Wallcliffe. Hand harvest, foot & hand stomped into the terrcotta pots. Hand plunged daily during wild fermentation then left on skins for six months with native malo. Basket pressed on a cold wintery day back to the amphora for maturation for three months. Hand bottled direct from the potts, sealed under cork with a wax top. No fining, no adds, no filtration, no pumping, no gas, only good old candle power & knuckle grease. Plus very minimal sulphur at the bottling process - this is to ensure no bottle variation & to eliminate any oygen pick up. - Winery Note
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.
