The Zibibbo variety is noted for its delightfully fresh aromas and light fresh palate making it the ideal variety to use in sparkling wine. The variety is part of the Muscat family and as such is the only grape to produce wine with exactly the same aroma as the grape itself. Delightfully fresh, this frothy, sweet ‘alfresco’ sparkling wine displays crisp floral aromas with citrus peel and creamy flavours on the palate. Pale straw in colour, the wine shouts of celebration and exuberance, and with a modest 8% alcohol, is ideal on a lazy sunny afternoon with friends.

Daily Telegraph - Jeff Collerson - 26.01.10
"Zibibbo is the Sicilian name for the white muscat grape and is especially suitable for being made into an Asti Spumante sparkling style like this. A flowery bouquet leads to a fruity, slightly sweet palate, balanced by a light crisp and creamy texture. There’s an appealing freshness that helps create a pleasing bubbly for any occasion."
Illawarra Mercury - 01.12.11
"Good value. Low alcohol (8%), perfumed notes on the nose, sweetish citrus fruit flavours, a light spritz and a creamy finish."

"Incredibly floral and heady muscat (aka Zibibbo); will doubtless gain some yardage from name (and aroma)."
Quaff 2011 - Peter Forrestal - The Best Wines in Australia Under $15
"‘Zibibbo’ is the Siciluian name for the muscat of alexandria white grape. Jancis Robinsons notes that these are less common in Italy (which invented the styler) than moscato, which is made from muscat a petit grains. The only other Zibibbos that I’ve seen in Australia are made by Brown Brothers, although recently I’ve found these pretty sweet. The Angove Zibibbo is lightly fizzy and fresh, with vibrant sweet grapey characters and good balance before a crisp, clean finish of considerable length. There’s only 8% alcohol, which makes this a great refreshing afternoon drink (I’m thinking of the weekends). At 75 grams of residual sugar per litre it is sweet, but there’s plenty of acidity to provide balance, so it doesn’t appear overly sweet or cloying. It has an attractive mouthfeel and delicious flavour. At the price, it’s a steal."
SA Life - David Sly - December 2009
"If your tempted to have another glass of bubbles the morning after, but realise that it’s very much in your best interests to take things gently, try this light and pleasantly frivolous froth. Angove has tried its hand for the very first time at producing zibibbo, a little known Sicillian style of moscato that uses the Muscat of Alexandrina grape variety. At a very gentle eight per cent alcohol, it has a soft fruity flavour with a light mousse that is fresh and clean on the slightly creamy palate, and with a pleasantly sweet grapey aroma. For a very cheap bottle of bubbles, it’s not so sickly sweet, with enough natural acidity to ensure its bright fruit sweetness is not cloying. Several bottles of this could dissappear quickly while you’re seated under the pergola."
Winestate Vol 32 Issue 7 - Special Edition 2009
"Nicely balanced Spumante style; sweet and fruity, with a slight floral, muscat-like aroma and good overall freshness."
