Brash Higgins, ZBO Ricca Terra Farms Zibibbo, Riverland 2017
Drinking Window: 2019 - 2023
Looking for a grape he could submit to long skin contact without losing its personality, winemaker Brad Hickey sourced 70-year-old bush-vine Zibibbo (aka Muscat of Alexandria) from Riverland. It ferments spontaneously and remains in amphorae for six months and with time, a layer of flor develops. The nose is perfumed and complex, revealing mandarin, honey, peach and a faint green olive note. The palate is waxy, with a tannic grip and great length. This unfined and unfiltered wine is justifiably cloudy, and is a great pick for the open-minded and adventurous.
