Dormilona 2017 Blanco

Dormilona is pretty lit, don’t ya think 😉

Dormilona 2017 Blanco

As soon as I saw this Dormilona 2017 Blanco available on The Wine Gallery’s website, I knew it was destined to be part of this months TC Wine Club.

Dormilona means lazy bones in Spanish which is a nickname winemaker Jo Perry picked up in Spain however it also refers to her hands-off approach to winemaking.

About this wine:

  • Made from Semillon grapes, but I believe there’s a splash of Chenin Blanc in the mix too (please correct me if I’m wrong Jo!)
  • Made from handpicked organic and biodynamic grapes from WA’s Margaret River
  • Whole bunch pressed, skin contact, lees stirring and some time spent in older oak to add texture

We found this white a pale yellow colour on the eye with a slight cloudiness to it. The nose is full of fresh herbs, orange rind and green apples for me. While in the mouth it’s full of juicy lemon acidity, more apples, a hint of peach and lick of beeswax. A unique and incredibly moreish white wine that’s good fun to drink.

All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!
