Jo Marsh’s Billy Button ‘The Alluring’ Tempranillo is a classic cool-climate Temp with a little attitude.
Jo selects two parcels of fruit each year from two different vineyards in her beloved Alpine Valleys. One parcel has fruit which is a little brighter, the other a little more savoury. Together they create just the right amount of ‘allure’ in the wine, a Tempranillo which is ready to go, right now, whenever you are.
The 2015 was rated 94 points by Campbell Mattinson and label “A thoroughly gorgeous wine.”. Made in typically small amounts (as is the Billy Button way), you’ll need to be quick if you want to give this a whirl.
What It Tastes Like
“A thoroughly gorgeous wine. Perfumed and fruit-driven, and so pretty in that way, but with plenty of grunty, earthen, cola-infused tannin and more than a little attitude throughout. Berried fruit bursts though the palate and extends out through the finish. A flush of acid applies some kind of rein. More than anything, it carves the word exuberance on your tongue.” - Campbell Mattinson (Australian Wine Companion)

About the Producer
Billy Button is one of our favourite wineries. As Jo Marsh continues to expand her brilliant boutique range she continues to impress us to no end.
Her commitment to alternative varietals with amazing drinkability is one of the most charming aspects of her label. This combined with a ferocious passion for her home in the Alpine Valleys and the growers that produces there, makes Billy Button a one-of-a-kind.
The Alpine Valley is one of the ‘must watch’ emerging regions of Australian wine. Not bound by the traditions of some of the more ‘established’ regions, the Alpine Valley is experimenting with ‘alternative’ varieties from all over the world and kicking some huge goals. The productions are small, the quality is high and this cool climate region is on a mission to stamp its authority on Australian wine. And they are doing one hell of a job.
Tempranillo is a hot-blooded Spanish variety that has found a happy home in many Australian wine regions. Typically, Tempranillo will be medium bodied, showing silky darker fruits and tannins riddled with exotic spices. The wines are more-ish and incredibly well suited to alfresco Australian dining. Unsurprisingly, Tempranillo is one of the country’s most popular emerging varieties and is set to have a big future on Australian shores.
