Innocent Bystander Pink Moscato 2021
“Aussie Moscato doesn’t come better than this. Bright fuchsia colour with a fine froth of foam; pristine muscat aromatics and intense fruit flavour, which persists and satisfies, and doesn’t rely on sugar. Ageing: Don’t wait.” - Huan Hooke
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.
This Pink Moscato has become a great big phenomenon. And, why not? It's the very definition of fun. A style originating in northern Italy's Piedmont, it is light in alcohol, fantastically fizzy and shows summer fruits, rose petal and Turkish delight. The wine is a blend of two different types of the Muscat grape: Muscat of Alexandria and Black Muscat.
