Jo Marsh is onto something here. This shows great promise.
About The Wine
A tiny batch of Grüner Veltliner fell into Jo Marsh's lap in 2017, and Jo's not one to turn away a stray variety.
The Grüner was made with classic Billy Button simplicity and precision. Jo describes it as Riesling on steroids and that pretty well sums it up.
It's tight and dry with smooth glassy texture and a sprinkling of spice.
A lovely Grüner done to a tee.
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.
