Innocent Bystander Pinot Noir
Innocent Bystander Pinot Noir has aromas of cherries, Campari, raspberries, fennel seeds with hints of bergamot tea and orange zest.
Innocent Bystander Pinot Noir is 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.
Innocent Bystander Pinot Noir takes the quality and regionality message very seriously, but manages to have fun along the way.
Founded in 2004 by Phil Sexton, Innocent Bystander is a Yarra Valley based estate producing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay alongside several other emerging varietals and blends. Phil has a long history in wine and brewing.
He established Devil’s Lair Winery in the Margaret River district in the 90’s, and co-founded the Little Creatures Brewing Company (one of Australia’s best boutique beers).
After selling Devil’s Lair, he looked around Australia for an area that had a similar promise of quality as Margaret River, and settled on the Yarra to produce Giant Steps and Innocent Bystander.
Innocent Bystander’s head winemaker, Steve Flamsteed, has worked for Leeuwin Estate, the Hardy Wine Company at their Yarra Burn Winery and, before moving to Giant Steps/Innocent Bystander in 2003, was chef of his own restaurant in the King Valley.
Their winery/cellar door in Healesville is a wonderful place to visit, with the best coffee in the area, a cheese room, pizza oven and bakery, and of course wine.
Their attitude is fun, but they are very serious about their wine. For the Innocent Bystander wines, Phil and Steve work with their own vineyards and like-minded growers to select fruit from the best sites for each variety.
