Their description at the Government Dairy Website
Bright yellow to the eye, the Catarratto Zibibbo has an aromatic bouquet with hints of tropical fruit, pineapple, elderflower and citrus. On the palate, it is fresh and fruity with balanced sweetness, and expresses notes of ripe tropical fruits like pineapple and mango, followed by white flowers and lime.

Zibibbo is the Sicilian name of the grape Muscat of Alexandria, which gives the wine its aromatic character. After harvest, the two grape varietals are fermented in stainless steel tanks in cool temperatures 14-16°C.
Slightly sweeter than our palate is used to – until the second sip and then it opens up wonderfully. it went VERY well with Roasted Chicken (stuffed with dates/raisins/cranberries)
and roasted veggies (carrots/potatoes/small yams/red onion)
Would go nicely with aged cheeses too
