Bizarra Extravaganza Orange, Uruguay 2019
Gros Manseng, Petit Manseng
An orange wine is a type of natural white wine made by leaving the grape skins and seeds in contact with the juice, creating a deep orange-hued finished product.
The Bizarra has a beautiful vibrant orchard fruit, think crisp apple with a marmalade and honey finish. Yet there is striking acidity creating balance. It is unfiltered so can be cloudy.
This is cofermented, winemaking involves leaving the grape skins and pips in contact with the juice for 35 days and then aging half in barrels, half in tanks for 6 months. This develops a naturally stable wine reducing the need other forms of stabilization like the use of high levels of Sulphur Dioxide. It is an ancient form of wine making which is gathering momentum around the world.
Bizarra is a movement that originates in Santiago Deicas’ passion and obsession for innovation.
It started a few years ago by making craft beer; he then decided to apply some of these techniques to make natural wine. This range aims to experimenting with oenology and its limits.
With the first vintage being 2018, and small quantities made, these are quickly becoming some of the most sought after vanguard wines from Uruguay.
