About

Wineries like Billy Button are exactly the reason Different Drop was founded. Talented winemakers making tiny volumes of brilliant and adventurous wines. It's exciting and inspiring, and we feel very privileged to represent these wonderful producers. Here we have Jo Marsh's 'The Feisty' Friulano , yet another alternative Italian variety doing cool things in her beloved Alpine Valleys. The grape originates from Friuli in North-East Italy, where it makes quite full-bodied and richly flavoured wines. There's only a handful of Friulanos in Australia. This has all of that intensity and texture but like all of Jo's wines they are so refreshing and seamlessly balanced. Jo's not afraid to try things and this is all hand picked, whole bunch pressed with 15% skin contact, before fermented naturally on full solids in older oak, and left on its lees for three months. A remarkable amount of work has gone into this wine considering its tiny volumes and more than generous price. It's so unique, so complex, so damn tasty. I just love it!

What it Tastes Like

This wine has a lot to say. All kinds of fruit on the nose - melons, peaches, bananas and apples, with a dusting of spice. The palate opens up with luscious texture and ripe stone fruits, underpinned by zesty, citrusy acidity. It fills the mouth with one breathe and then washes it away with the next. Very impressively made wine - complex, unbelievably flavours and yet still more-ish and refreshing.
