Yokel Grenache 2020 - Swan Valley
Closure: Crown seal
Bottle size: 750ml
The bush vine Grenache is dry grown & was established in the 1950’s by the Vino Italia family vineyard middle Swan. Cracking fruit, hand harvest by the family themselves & delivered to the Dormilona winery with love. Destemmed into opens & fermented on skins for up to 10 days. Light basket pressed straight to tank. Racked off heavy lees to bottle with a little dabble of sulphur.
Just in and delicious drinking again this year. The Yokel wines always sell out quickly, so don't miss this one!
Going back now, the Whadjuk Noongar people have lived in the region for over 45,000 years. They believe the Wagyl, a dreamtime serpent, carved out the land and waterways, and still lives hidden in the Swan River today.
Swan River Colony was established in 1829 & the first vines were planted very next year. From here it went booming along. Mostly southern European families grew the vines for wine, table grapes & dried fruit
Still today, the Swan Valley wineries are mainly small family-run businesses. However, the increased clearing of land for agriculture and housing has harmed native wildlife and fauna.
Western Swamp Tortoise- Yokel’s Mascot
The Western Swamp Tortoise native to the waterways of Swan River but is currently the most critically endangered reptile in Australia.
It is cute with a yellow-brown or black shell, short neck covered in knobbles and webbed feet with claws. It is not your everyday tortoise, and that’s why it’s our mascot and friend of Dormilona.
The Tortoise is our Yokel. The country bumpkin that is coming to the big smoke to get up to some mischief. Set in the 1920’s as this the era that the vines were planted for these wines.
With every bottle of the Yokel wine sold, a dollar will be given back to our little mascot and donated to the hard-working initiative Friends of the Western Swamp Tortoise and the amazing breeding program at the Perth Zoo.
