Pink & Bubbly Moscato

Innocent Bystander Pink Moscato is authentically made from old-vine Gordo (brown) and Black Muscat (Muscat of Hamburg) grapes exclusively grown for us in the sun-drenched vineyards around Swan Hill on Australia’s Murray River.

They have chosen these vineyards because they allow us to pick with acidity, sweetness and alcohol at their optimum levels - thus not requiring manipulation in the winery.

Vinification:

Fruit was hand harvested in the cool of the night, chilled and received in the winery with 8 hours of picking.

The fruit was destemmed and crushed to press for two hours of skin contact (to give it the rose colour), before being gently pressed to tank. Pressings were gentle and cuts were kept separate.

The free run portions were fermented long and cool (12-14 deg C) in tank to retain aromas.

The pressings were racked to barrel and had a warmish 20 - 24 deg C ferment.

Long settling enabled minimal filtration prior to bottling.

Oak:

Pressings only, in French oak, for six months

Founded in 2004 by Phil Sexton, Innocent Bystander is a Yarra Valley based estate, 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”.

The fruit for the Innocent Bystander wines is sourced from vineyards in the Yarra Valley as well as selected vineyards throughout Victoria.

Innocent Bystander have forged a reputation for delivering some of the Yarra Valley’s most consistent, over-performing, affordable, varietal wines. http://www.innocentbystander.com.au/

Using 100% hand picked fruit, wild ferments and gravity-flow winemaking techniques, their wines, made with minimal filtration and fining, reflect the climate, soil and topography of the Yarra Valley.

These strikingly branded wines have established a strong reputation in restaurants and fine wine stores around the world.
