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!

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.

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!

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)

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts?

No our pricing is aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

No, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

Can I special order a wine you do not sell?

If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
