About

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 Friulano in Australia. This has all of that intensity and texture but like all of Jo's wines, they are so refreshing and seamlessly balanced. She says the fruit from 2016 was the best she's seen. And Jo's not afraid to try things with this hanging out on skins for 6 months before bottling. A remarkable amount of work has gone into this wine considering its tiny volumes and more than generous price. It's unique, so complex, so damn tasty. As Campbell Mattinson said, "You'd go this."

What it Tastes Like

"Golden colour. Extravagant aromatics. Honeysuckle and custard apples, ginger and nashi pear. It has power, it has texture, it has prettiness and it has interest, but mostly it has drinkability. You’d go this." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
