(Half bottle) Pink Moscato, Innocent Bystander

Australia, Yarra Valley

Brilliant, innovative Ozzie take on an Italian Piedmont classic. Gently (not fully) sparkling, sweet, very fruity and light in body and alcohol, but so disarmingly drinkable!”

Origin

Grapes sourced from six different vineyards in the Swan Hill area of the Murray-Darling Basin; these two rivers provide the natural irrigation for these vines. This is a very warm viticultural area - with average summer temperatures at 100°F - resulting in ideal growing conditions for the production of late harvest, super ripe Muscat grapes.

Grape Variety

80% Gordo Muscat (known in Europe as Muscat of Alexandria) and 20% Black Muscat (Muscat of Hamburg).

The production focuses on preserving the wine's fruity, fresh and estery characteristics. Harvested at the cool of night to preserve freshness, grapes are pressed and given just six hours contact with skins for colour. Fermentation is short, stopped at 5.5% by cooling the wine; then brought down to 0˚C for cold filtering, both the natural sweetness and bubbles are preserved.

Producer

Innocent Bystander was set up by Phil Sexton in 2004 after he sold Devil's Lair in Margaret River. Second time around he could use the wisdom of experience to get everything right: the winery, the image, the quality and the value-for-money. Now renowned for their Pink Moscato, the estate also cultivates Pinot Noir and Chardonnay alongside Pinot Gris and cool climate Syrah.

Food Match

Pair with really light, fresh, delicate sweets or cake such as a Victorian sponge - or just find a sunny garden and friends and enjoy.

Suitable for vegetarians.
