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.
