About The Wine

The Demure Pinot Blanc is exactly that, demure. This wine is all class and sophistication.

As the name suggests, this grape is almost shy, and somewhat elusive, but given the time to get to know it, it is a beautiful drinking experience. Pinot Blanc is often overlooked for it's 'muted' qualities, here Jo Marsh has managed to bring the variety out of its shell with some confident and intelligent winemaking.

The 2017 collected the Trophy for Best Other White Variety at the 2017 North East Victorian Wine Show, no mean feat for a variety that isn't 'showy'. Clearly, the class of the 2017 shone through. If you are looking for a mouthful of 'big' flavours, maybe this isn't the thing for you tonight. If you are looking for something subtle and beautifully made, this is your girl!

The Wine Front

"Much going on here. Pinot blanc from the Alpine Valleys, at the hand of the unstoppable Jo Marsh. Personality. And then some. But in a clean, frisky context. Honeysuckle and apple, spice and stonefruit. So lively. So tasty. Perfectly put together." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

I just love Pinot Blanc, I think it's such a better variety than its widely planted close relative Pinot Gris. Pear and spice aromas combine with a tight but textural palate that make it a great accompaniment to delicate seafood dishes. With the majority of this wine already allocated to restaurants, it is sure to disappear fast!
