Brown Brothers Zibibbo
There was recently a wine tasting at our fave bottle shop Dan Murphys, and this was one of the wines they had avaliable to try. I hadn't had many Zibibbo's in my time (if any!!!) and so, I had to try it.
Basically, the words that came to my mind were "sweet champagne" and maybe even "spumante" (or SPEWmante as I like to call it), but without the nastiness. It wasn't quite a dessert wine but it'd work with desserts (like a pavlova). It'd work without food, too. It's light, bubbly and a "happy" wine. It's come to me just in time for Spring and Summertime.
As with all wines - it does come down to personal preference ... but my boyfriend also enjoyed this, so it's not just a girlie drink, even though it may seem that way.
The colour is a very light straw yellow. It isn't extremely bubbly like other wines I have experienced, but make no mistake, there are bubbles. The bubbles just don't rape you.
The flavours? Light and fruity. There was def. some melon happening there (yum!).
This wine really doesn't need cellaring. It's ready to have and enjoy chilled right now. It's only 6.0% alcohol, too, so it'll go down easy.
Price: We picked it up for about $13.
Would I buy this wine again? Yes. It's a reasonable price, and it's yummy.
