About The Wine
It seemed only a matter of time before Jo Marsh would produce a Nebbiolo.
Her love for the Italian variety and her love for the Alpine Valleys converge in this 2015 release. A small vineyard planted on an old river bed supplied the fruit. The fruit spent a lazy six months on skins before bedding down in oak. Only two barrels were made. One old, one older.
This is a lovely, approachable, mid-weight Nebbiolo. It's a welcoming style of the variety. A gate-way Nebbiolo for those looking to explore the variety.
If you are familiar with Jo's wines, you know she rarely puts a foot wrong. This is no different. It's Nebbiolo the Jo Marsh way, ready to be enjoyed and varietally right on the money.
About Billy Button
Billy Button is the charming Alpine Valleys based project of ubertalented winemaker Jo Marsh, now helped by her winemaker husband Glenn James and young winemaker Alex Phillips.
Billy Button focuses primarily on producing small batches of alternative varieties from good local growers in their small patch of Victoria. The team explores varieties that are rarely seen in the Australian landscape - you can find anything from Schioppettino to Verduzzo in this eclectic range.
Jo's gentle touch in the winery makes for beautifully balanced wines that show great texture and vibrancy. The Billy Button range is a little gem of North East Victoria. It's one of the more unique wine ranges in the country and the perfect place to begin your exploration of alternative varieties.
