About

Missed out on this 'Affable' little gem last year? Don't let it happen again! If you have never tried the Billy Button wines, this is a great introduction to what Jo Marsh is all about: Alpine Valley fruit masterfully handled, bundled up with incredible value. Over the last three vintages this has garnered a reputation as one of the most drinkable Barberas in the country. The key here is balance. Where other Aussie Barbera can be a little wishy-washy this hits the nail on the head. Jo says, "It is now one of my most popular wines and one of my most consistent" and it rightfully has been the fastest of her range to sell out each year. This year's production is smaller than last year. And it won three trophies including the Best Red of Show at the 2017 North East Victoria Wine Challenge. Don't miss out on this charismatic little red from one of the Alpine Valleys' finest.

What it Tastes Like

Ripe blueberries and mulberries. Plenty of succulent, juicy fruits laid on a silky bed of fine, powdery tannins. Some fresh herbs twist through the finish. Joyful, smashable wine here set to make plenty of friends. Might be the tastiest yet from Jo.
