2021 Dormilona Orenji
Simple, honest and very delicious orange wine. The 2021 Dormilona Orenji is made form organic Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc, hand harvested then fermented on skins for two weeks in open fermenters, and a giant cement egg (qvevris) for eight weeks. After this it was pressed off to barrel and egg for full malo. Simply racked, with a touch of sulphur before bottling.
In Spanish Dormilona means ‘lazy bones.’ In the wine world however, it refers to the tantalising wines of Margaret River winemaker, Josephine Perry (who was nicknamed ‘Dormilona’ in Spain given she would always be finding a sweet spot to tuck herself into bed after those late-night Spanish dinners). Coming out of Yallingup WA, Perry is shaking up the scene of traditional Western Australian wine with her incredible range of small batch, new generation, hand crafted wines. Wines that have earnt Josephine Perry many awards including the 2016 Young Gun of Wine.
