Barrel and either way it’s drying and It’s not particularly pleasant to drink Obviously you know you look at that Glass of wine and you think What am i drinking because of the color Of it I don’t think i’ve recently drunk Anything that is Anywhere close to that color good on you Christine we’ll have a judge with an Open mind And before they judge how they feel About the zippy zibibo A reminder both wines spend extensive Time in contact with her skins Let’s see what the aussies think of Zebibo Oh okay that’s natural for sure you can Tell by the cloudiness Yeah it’s it’s definitely a natural wine Just by smelling it i mean i don’t even Have to try it Maybe it’s one of those musket varieties One of the many she’s good Sabibo is also known as muscat from Alexandria Yeah getting lots of muscat characters Here they are good Musket again from matt it’s definitely On the funkier style a little bit of Skin contact it’s got ginger zest it’s Got freshness It’s got all the things i love it’s very Aromatic but like

My pick is this To all he goes for latto’s aged Mitzvahni Oh counselor christine decision time Build drama i probably don’t know enough About any variety of grape to come Anywhere close on these two But in terms of how they taste That’s my winner and that’s 3-2 georgia This is the winner for me but no Surprise from luella It’s three all game tied after sydney Speak Lado and katie tied up some aussies Loved Amber wine but also plenty of flags for What will the georgians make of the Aussie amphora All to come in the finale from tbilisi Subscribe and ring the bell for Notifications as All the battles are released [Music]
