I’ve tasted this a few times and have loved it on every occasion.
About The Wine
This is something out there from the Billy Button camp!
Verduzzo originates from Friuli in North-East Italy, but it's pretty much an unknown quantity here. Jo Marsh, head-honcho at Billy Button, describes it as "The red drinker's white, a full bodied style with structured phenolics." which sums up the variety's character quite nicely.
This is a wonderfully savoury and structural wine with a completely unique set of flavours. Each iteration from Jo has been better than the last as she becomes more familiar with this variety. The 2016 is no exception.
If you're looking for a food-friendly wine with a point of difference to wow your dinner guests, this is a great option.
