Origin: Margaret River
Region: Western Australia
Grape(s): Sauvignon Blanc + Semillon
Style: Light-bodied orange wine made in stainless steel
This is some damn good juice. Unbelievable that Sauvignon Blanc can give this kind of character on the nose. Aromas of sweet peach, honey, some grassiness, iris. Piercing acidity, so much texture coming from the Semillon. Long, mineral finish. This is an ideal beach day wine.
Small batch winery Dormilona is run by Jo and husband Jimmy. The name Dormilona means ‘lazy bones’ in Spanish and reflects their laidback approach to winemaking and her nickname during her winemaking years in Spain. She makes wine to express the vintage, the conditions, the site, the soils and best of all, uses very little intervention.
