£9.95 a bottle

The Innocent Bystander pink moscato is vivid pink in colour, highly aromatic with notes of blackcurrant, Turkish delight, mandarin peel and a hint of candy floss. The palate has intense flavours of strawberry, violets and honeycomb. This Moscato is rich and fruity with balanced residual sugar, a cleansing natural acidity and a gently sparkling finish.

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.

Harvested in the cool of the night, the fruit was chilled and crushed with six hours skin contact to extract a vibrant hint of pink from the Black Muscat grapes. The juice then underwent a cool fermentation in stainless steel vats to retain the freshness and to trap the natural effervescence. Fermentation was stopped at 5.5% alcohol by chilling the wine before it was then bottled under pressure.

Producer

Innocent Bystander’s reputation has been built upon the style of their regional and varietal wines, which reflect the soil, climate and topography of the cool Yarra Valley. Owned by one of Australia’s leading family-owned wine companies, Brown Brothers, the Yarra Valley fruit is harvested and immediately transported to their winery in Milawa, Northern Victoria. Here the winemaking team process the grapes in their ‘Kindergarten Winery’, specially designed for small batches and different winemaking techniques for minimal intervention.

    Fancied something different for Christmas morning drinks and this certainly hit the mark- it was so good the wife asked I do not re order too much as she will just drink it- great value and great taste. Certainly can see us having this as a summer party drink
