Winemaker's Notes:

A warm, dry season prompted early picking. The fruit was then harvested at night, chilled and crushed. After 6 hours of skin contact, the fruit was pressed to stainless steel tanks and filtered before inoculation. The juice was cold fermented until full, natural carbonation was achieved and the optimum balance between sugar and alcohol was reached. The wine was cold filtered and cold bottled.

Innocent Bystander's pale pink 375 ml serve of moscato comes dressed to impress. Flaunting a beautiful floral label, a convenient pop-top crown seal, and a gentle mouth-tingling fizz, this wine is sure to keep you cool this summer. This refreshing sipper offers delicious aromas of watermelon, red apples, and soft rose petal characters.

On the palate, strawberries and hints of sherbet ice cream are backed by a clean acid zing. Delicious on its own or paired with a variety of fare, Innocent Bystander's moscato is sure to please.

About Innocent Bystander:

The idea behind Innocent Bystander is to produce great value, food friendly wines that are not your run of the mill varietal blends. Taking fruit from various sources in Central Victoria (in particular Sangiovese, Shiraz, Pinot Gris and Viognier) the team at Innocent Bystander is inspired to utilize and showcase the natural qualities of each region in their unique blends.

As a group of winemakers and viticulturalists who eschew the bland direction and market dominance increasingly exerted by the large corporate winemaking groups, the folks behind these wines see themselves as innocent bystanders. They remain accountable to their craft, not shareholders.
