SIDNEY WILCOX, Old Vine Zibibbo
Old Vine Zibibbo
Old vines of the Zibibbo variety, planted on our estate in the 1970s, are carefully tended to produce a zesty wine. Grown from the single vineyard fruit on ancient sheet limestone with red desert sand overlay. The low yielding fruit was cold bag pressed, cold settled and racked into ferment. A small portion was influenced by seasoned French oak. The majority was tank fermented to retain varietal freshness.
The palate is rich with ripe persimmon, delicate floral orange blossom and spiced muscat notes. Made for curry, creamy chicken pasta or spiced lemongrass stir fry dishes. Vegetarian friendly.
