Innocent Bystander Yarra Valley Pinot Noir 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

*Silver Medal - 2015 Yarra Valley Wine Show* Founded in 1997 by Phil Sexton, Innocent Bystander is a Yarra Valley based estate producing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay alongside Pinot Gris and cool climate Syrah. They are also now renowned for their fun and fizzy pink Moscato. Located in Healesville, the winery is an exercise in function over form, much like the strongly expressed views of its owners and winemaking team: “Make great wine for drinking and enjoying; not crowing over”. Innocent Bystander wines are an expression of pure regional varietal wines which reflect the soil, climate and topography of the cool climate Yarra Valley. Aromas of cherries, Campari, raspberries, fennel seeds with hints of bergamot tea and orange zest. Lively on the palate with fresh, ripe raspberries with a beetroot earthiness. A wine of purity, silken texture and slippery tannins. Approachable now, but beguiling layers hint to an intriguing future.

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.
