Muscat Durif Alpine Victoria
Coldstone has taken the pick of their Muscat crop and fashioned an irresistible, effervescent Rose. The post-modern pink wine with an easy to enjoy flavour profile, fresh and lively, packed with intense aromas, displaying a creamy, fruity palate. Zibbibo Rose is the perfect party sparkler to put the festive touch into every occasion.
Victorian Alps Winery has spent many years crafting wines for some of Australia's most recognizable labels. The alpine breezes, high rainfall and spring runoffs provide abundant clear, fresh water. The cool ripening conditions prevent high levels of transpiration in the grapes, retaining natural acids, sugars and esters. Zibibbo is inoculated by aromatic yeasts and vinified at cool temperatures as low as 8C. The fermentation is arrested when the aromatics and flavour characteristics achieve perfect balance, and the wine is still slightly sweet. A small addition of Durif is assembled into the finished Cuvee to achieve the vibrant pink colour and infuse the wine with spicy berry aromas. Approx 7.5%
A vibrant pink colour, persistent mousse. Bouquets of summer berries and cherry, fully aromatic with floral characters and hints of spice. The palate comes alive, raspberry and strawberry, creamy textures coat the tongue with luscious pink fruit as the wine culminates in a long, lingering finish of fresh citrus. Enjoy with summer stonefruit granita, but Zibbibo Rose is great just by itself.
