Innocent Bystander Chardonnay

Innocent Bystander Chardonnay

Innocent Bystander Chardonnay – Subtle dried figs, hazelnuts and honeycomb come through on the nose along with more lifted notes of preserved lemons and lemon sherbert. Hints of hay add another layer of complexity. The palate is well weighted with a fine texture and a meringue mouth feel. Lemon curd flavours with a lime juice finish.

Innocent Bystander Chardonnay – Smells of fresh pear, lemon, poached apple, florals and marzipan and tastes like
crisp, fresh and dry with a stonefruit core and citrusy pithy texture

The Innocent Bystander story – Innocent Bystander creates wines that are delicious expressions of what we love to make and drink. They’re perfect for exploring iconic varieties from our home in the Yarra Valley as well as inspiring varieties from elsewhere in Victoria.
If we can’t make it great, we don’t make it at all. Our wines are made with quality fruit and a soft touch, with vinification that includes hand-picking, wild yeast and whole bunch ferments. We’re not judgemental about wine; we know there are people who love Moscato and bubbles as well as those searching for an exceptional Yarra Valley Pinot Noir and our range of wines reflects that.
We don’t make single vineyards wines, but we do know that great wines need great fruit, so we source the best grapes we can from some of the top vineyards in the Yarra Valley and if there’s a variety we want to make that doesn’t grow well here, we’ll get the fruit from elsewhere. Our winemaking team treat every parcel of fruit individually to ensure their characters shine through in the finished product, showing off the very best of the varieties and regions they represent to make flavoursome, balanced and delicious wines.

Innocent Bystander

“Innocent Bystander is a Yarra Valley based winery producing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir alongside several emerging varietals including Pinot Gris, Moscato, Sangiovese & cool climate grown Shiraz. The label first came about when the Giant Steps team decided to produce wines from the many brilliant vineyards they came across in the Yarra Valley and beyond.
A visit to the winery in Healesville`s main street is a fascinating experience. Built around gravity flow principles and designed for hand making small batches of wine, the winery is an exercise in function over form, much like the strongly expressed views of its owners and winemaking team.
These are approachable, drinkable wines that deliver abundant fruit flavour – their winemakers like to think of them as “a bloody good drink!” “

Yarra Valley

Victoria is a small state in area, but home to possibly the largest number of wineries in Australia, most of them which are small family-run operations. Victoria’s diverse topography, combining numerous mountain ranges, like the Grampians and the Victorian Pyrenees throughout the centre; flat plains in the northeast; and hilly, ocean-cooled reaches in the Melbourne area, make its vineyards amongst the most scenic in Australia. An enormous range of wine styles are available, and virtually every varietal flourishes in some part of the state.

Chardonnay

Australia’s most widely planted white grape variety. The heavily oaked styles of the earlier nineties are now being replaced with styles emphasising the regional fruit and greater complexity. The cooler climate regions producing styles of great elegance and finesse.
