"Bright neon pink. Heady red berry liqueur, tangerine and floral scents are sharpened by a peppery element and a hint of spicecake. Juicy, gently sweet and expansive, offering intense raspberry and cherry compote flavors that are reined in by a hint of tangy acidity. Finishes smooth and broad, with resonating red fruit and floral notes and good cling. This delicious, ridiculously easy-to-drink wine clocks in at 5.5% alcohol, by the way. It would make a great pairing with spicy northern Indian food."-AG
Innocent BystanderView all from Innocent Bystander
The idea behind Innocent Bystander is to produce great value, food friendly wines that are not your run of the mill varietal blends. Taking fruit from various sources in Central Victoria (in particular Sangiovese, Shiraz, Pinot Gris and Viognier) the team at Innocent Bystander is inspired to utilize and showcase the natural qualities of each region in their unique blends.
As a group of winemakers and viticulturalists who eschew the bland direction and market dominance increasingly exerted by the large corporate winemaking groups, the folks behind these wines see themselves as innocent bystanders. They remain accountable to their craft, not shareholders.
