DORMILONA YOKEL ROSE
Dormilona means ‘lazy bones’ in Spanish, which is winemaker Jo Perry’s nickname. She might be laid back, but her winemaking style is all about attention to detail. Her and partner Jim Crespin’s wines are naturally made, no additives, no fining and no filtration, just a sprinkle of sulphur and some no sulphur at all. Here’s what they say about this particular drop:
Rosé is made from Grenache. Sourced from a dear gentleman Eugenio, who runs the family estate Vino Italia. Hand harvested, detested & left on skins for a day, then basket pressed straight to amphora & oak. Once dry, blended & aged in a large concrete egg called Bacon. Simply racked to bottle with a kiss of a sulphur.
