Cracka Review

Zibibbo is related to the muscat grape, and it's actually pretty close to moscato. It certainly produces a similar style of wine in the fruity, low-alcohol (8%) vein. Grapy, muskstick and red berry aromas rise from the glass, whilst the palate is light-hearted, spritzy and quite sweet, with strawberry flavours and a soft, effervescent finish. Chill it down and enjoy with a fruit platter.

Winemaker's Notes

Zibibbo Rosa is an exciting addition to the Brown Brothers range. A refined pink sparkling wine that is slightly drier than Zibibbo while still sharing its deliciously fruity style. Zibibbo Rosa is a beautiful pale pink colour and shows lifted aromas of strawberries and summer fruits. On the palate this vibrant sparkling has characters of strawberries and watermelon followed by a clean fresh finish.

This delicious pink sparkling is the perfect way to add a sense of celebration to any occasion. Zibibbo Rosa is ideal served either as an aperitif or with light canapés. Alternatively serve with a dessert of Turkish delight and home made vanilla ice cream.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday says
An exceptionally clever cellar door style; bright, fresh cherry and raspberry flavours, the sweetness balanced by acidity. Zibibbo is an Italian synonym for muscat of alexandria.

I prefer the pink Zibibbo to the white this year. It's fragrant with ripe, sweet musk stick, fruit tingle (remember them?) and grape juice flavours, finishing crisp, clean and gently sweet

It may sound like the latest and greatest Italian motor scooter to hit our shores, but this pink sparkling is a light, refreshing and low-alcohol wine made with Muscat of Alexandria (aka zibibbo). Smells super fresh, like fresh grape juice, with some floral musky perfume; it's sweet, refreshing and a tidy 8% alcohol.

This isn't really a red but it does have a pink/red hue and it's such a phenomenon that it 100 per cent deserves a place in this book. It's made with muscat of Alexandria grapes and, let's face it, Zibibbo is a very cool name. NV RELEASE As a fine wine it's crummy but as a fun wine it's got it going on. Serve this when you want people to like you. Sweet, grapey, strawberried and, how can I say it and keep my testosterone intact... fluffy in the mouth. It was never meant to be contemplated (or written about) but it is meant to be drunk, and in a light, sweet way it's very good for that. The alcohol is a modest eight per cent. DRINK 2008.
