BIZZARRO - BITTER APERITIVO 750ML
Bizzarro is a classic bitter aperitivo made by infusing citrus fruits and botanicals in organically grown, skin fermented white wine, fortified with neutral grape spirit. Its subtle balance of bitter, sweet and aromatic makes it perfect in a spritz with sparkling wine, on the rocks, or served with a dash of soda.
Bizzarro is our take on an all natural, Australian bitter aperitivo, made in our own Delinquente way – scant regard for tradition, all about deliciousness.
We take a neutral grape spirit, infuse it with an array of fruits, herbs and other botanicals, and use this concoction to fortify a dry white wine.
But, of course, we up the flavour ante, using organically grown Riverland oranges and lemons to create an intoxicating citrus hit. Traditional aperitivo ingredients such as rhubarb and gentian root provide the bitterness, while the base wine is our super aromatic, organic and biodynamic skin contact Vermentino.
The result – an aperitivo that perfectly balances sweet and bitter, making it incredible versatile – pour it into your pet nat spritz, mix it into your favourite cocktails or serve up over ice with a splash of soda.
