Brash Higgins ZBO Zibibbo 2019

For this wine, Brash Higgins uses the delightful Italian synonym for Muscat d’Alexandria, Zibibbo. The grapes are sourced from the highly regarded Ricca Terra Farms in the Riverland, whose sustainably farmed seventy-five-year-old bush vines are planted on red ironstone soils. After hand harvesting, the grapes were destemmed into 200-litre beeswax-lined clay amphorae to ferment using only wild yeast. The wine was left in contact with the skins for 180 days, before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. The resulting wine is intensely aromatic, with notes of apricots, elderflowers and honey on the nose. This suggestion of sweetness, however, is false and on the palate, the wine is bone dry, with a bold tannic grip from the skin contact.

Organic Vines in Vineyard

It is estimated that there are more than 10,000 grape varieties in present commercial production, yet this probably includes the same grapes under other names. With the increase of DNA fingerprinting it is thought that the real number might come down closer to 5,000.
