The Details

In a Nutshell

Fresh and crisp Pinot Grigio from an excellent Yarra Valley producer.

Tasting Notes

The nose is brimming with fresh cut pears, snow pea shoots, and notes of lemon thyme. The palate is marked with lime flowers and an intriguing touch of miso. It is fresh, crisp and bone-dry and finishes with a lemon sorbet twang.

Production Notes

In 2015, Innocent Bystander included two very special vineyards from the upper King Valley: Symphonia Vineyard at Myrrhee (altitude 350 metres) and Crouchers Vineyard at Whitlands (altitude 800 metres). Both these parcels add a spike of minerally citrus to the wine.

The fruit was 100% hand picked and whole bunch pressed. 70% of the fruit went into stainless steel for a long, cold fermentation to preserve freshness in the wine. The remaining 30% of the fruit was fermented and matured in French oak (10% new) to give a luscious mouthfeel.

Producer - Innocent Bystander

Innocent Bystander takes the quality and regionality message very seriously, but manages to have fun along the way. Founded in 2004 by Phil Sexton, Innocent Bystander is a Yarra Valley based estate producing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay alongside several other emerging varietals and blends. Phil has a long history in wine and brewing.
