Innocent Bystander Pinot Gris

Innocent Bystander Pinot Gris

Innocent Bystander Pinot Gris – Lemon peel, preserved ginger, cardamon and coriander perfumes combine with freshly cut white pears and pear skin. The aromas are crisp like freshly grated lemon. On the lively palate, honeydew melons and fresh pear have a melting acidity that lingers like homemade lemonade.

Pinot Gris is everyone’s mate. This cheeky, citrus-driven French style white is refreshing, easy going and lingers just long enough. Not too fresh, not too oaky. The Goldilocks of the whites.
Region: Yarra and King Valleys
Alc/Vol: 14%
Smells like: Fresh cut pears, snow peas shoots and lemon thyme
Tastes like: Lime flowers and miso. Crisp, bone dry and moreish with twangy lemon sorbet finish
Goes with: Beer battered whiting with chips and tartare, fresh oysters, goats cheese and char grilled vegies. Sunshine, but also rain, hail and snow (basically anytime, all the time)

A great growing summer in the upper King Valley, gave us a delicious spike in mineral citrus.

Reviews:
94 points – Peter Chapman, News Corp
“This Victorian winery is continuing to grow in popularity and with wines such as this it’s easy to understand why. Pinot gris is becoming a popular drop for many and this is a classy one to savour.”

90 points – Ray Jordan, The West Australian
“I like this style of gris. It retains a freshness and lively palate feel and doesn’t fall into that overdone heavy category that can sometimes mar this variety. Comes from the King and Yarra valleys. Nice melon and pear characters with a typical spicy lift. A little dab of French oak and lees stirring has brought the palate to life

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.
