Innocent Bystander Syrah Mea Culpa 2010

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

100% separate parcel. Whole bunch fermentation off the north facing slope of Tarraford no filtration gravity bottled. Very vibrant and rather austere and demanding. Yes it s more of a Shiraz than a Syrah. A little lolly on the end. Jancis Robinson.

An experienced vigneron counting over 20 years in the Australian wine industry, Phil Sexton relocated from the warm, coastal region of Margaret River to the gravelly slopes of Victoria’s Yarra Valley in the late 1990s to pursue cool climate viticulture. Beyond the pristine Chardonnay and Pinot Noir he was able to produce in the Valley, Phil discovered a number of vineyards in far flung corners of Victoria that inspired him to explore regional diversity in this small state. Thus the Innocent Bystander label was created, and his talented winemaking team tasked with delivering a range of wines with a personality all their own: distinctly regional, varietally expressive and definitely not your run of the mill blends.

100% separate parcel. Whole bunch fermentation off the north facing slope of Tarraford, no filtration, gravity bottled. Very vibrant and rather austere and demanding. Yes, it's more of a Shiraz than a Syrah. A little lolly on the end. Jancis Robinson. A Syrah wine from Victoria in Australia. 2010 Innocent Bystander Syrah Mea Culpa 750ml
