Description

Billy Button have been making wine since 2014. They focus on 3 factors: emerging regions, varietal diversity and an inspired wine making vision, sourcing their grapes from neighbouring vineyards in the Alpine and King Valley. In Jan 2020, bushfires rampaged through the Alpine valley, those who were left standing were dealt the later blow of smoke taint. At Billy Button they were unable to harvest their 2020 Alpine Valley fruit. Instead focusing on grapes from the lesser effected King Valley and spreading their wings to other Victorian regions (Chalmers Vineyards in Heathcote) to source their fruit. This ‘Wild flower’ Bianco is a blend of Friulano, Verdelho, Albarino, Chardonnay and Riesling from the Alpine and King Valley. Wine maker Jo Marsh has experience working with over 55 varietals and this is evident in this aromatic, bright yet savoury white blend.
