Vinaceous Voodoo Moon

Vinaceous Voodoo Moon Malbec

Vinaceous Voodoo Moon

With Margaret River showing such propensity with Cabernet and Cab-Merlot blends, it make sense that this ‘lesser’ Bordeaux grape would do well here too. From a single vineyard in Wilyabrup, the fruit is basket pressed and matured for 15 months in French and American oak barriques, 25% new. This gives a rich, weighty palate of dense bramble fruit, softly textured tannins and a long chocolatey finish. Cool label too.

The 2016 Vinaceous Voodoo Moon Malbec is our fifth vintage of this exciting varietal. Sourced from a single vineyard in the sub-region of Wilyabrup, Margaret River from mature vines, the Voodoo Moon used traditional winemaking techniques to achieve full colour and extraction. The wine is matured in 100% French oak barriques for 12-15 months before final blending is completed by Michael Kerrigan and Nick Stacy. The resulting wine is dark, deep purple in colour and has a brooding and perfumed bouquet. The palate is rich, layered and textured – really fills the mouth with its immense power and weight, but retains its finesse with long, soft integrated tannins. The Vinaceous Voodoo Moon will cellar and improve for 8 – 10 years, but equally appeals as an immediate drink – match with roast meats, braises and mature cheeses. Approximately 625 dozen produced.

Dark, deep purple in colour and has a brooding and perfumed bouquet. The palate is rich, layered and textured – really fills the mouth with its immense power and weight, but retains its finesse with long, soft integrated tannins.
Hand-picked, open fermented Malbec from Wilyabrup, Margaret River. Basket pressed into some 25% new oak barriques (French & American) to finish fermentation. 14 – 15 months maturation in the same oak. Vinified, fined, blended and bottled by Vinaceous Wines.
Famous as one of the traditional Bordeaux red grape varieties, Malbec is grown all over the world especially Argentina and now increasingly in Australia. Valued for its amazing depth of colour, generosity of fruit expression and fullness of flavour, Malbec has found the growing conditions of Margaret River ideally suited to producing full bodied wines of great depth and character – unsurprising considering the similar climatic conditions experienced by Bordeaux and Margaret River.

The Vinaceous Voodoo Moon will cellar and improve for 8 – 10 years, but equally appeals as an immediate drink – match with roast meats, braises and mature cheeses. Approximately 2,500 dozen produced.

Franklin Estate Semillon Sauvignon Blanc

Franklin Estate Semillon Sauvignon

Franklin Estate Semillon Sauvignon Blanc

Both the Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon fruit for this wine were harvested on a cool March evening and processed under inert conditions to retain aromatic varietal characters.
The Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon were processed individually with some skin contact in the grape press. Following settling, the wines were racked and inoculated for ferment in stainless steel vessels. A combination of yeasts were used to enhance the varietal characters and to produce fresh, fruity, clean wines. The ferments were held at a cool temperature around 11-12°C and lasted on average for 14 days. This cooler fermentation temperature also allows for the preservation of fruit aromas and flavours. After a few weeks on yeast lees, the wines were racked off lees and the individual components assessed and blended.
The final blend was given a light fining before being filtered and prepared for bottling.

Madfish Riesling

Madfish Riesling

Madfish Riesling by Burch Family Vineyards in Western Australia

MadFish Wines is named after a remote beach in the south westerly corner of Western Australia. The local legend of MadFish Bay tells of rare and perfect conditions where two opposing tides meet, causing schools of fish to leap out of the water in confusion and chaos.

The MadFish Riesling grows in the Great Southern wine region of Western Australia. This climate is called “continental” and is characterized by long cold winters, warm summers and not a lot of rainfall. Being away from the coast, the difference between the day time and night time temperature is greater than in a region closer to the coast. Riesling seems to like these conditions.

Winemakers say Riesling is tough to make because there is nowhere to hide. It’s just you and the grapes, no oak, no malo, no tricks…

When they make Riesling we strive to preserve and showcase clean, bright citrus and apple, fruit flavours. Sometimes the acidity can be a little high so leaving a bit of sugar at the end of the fermentation gives a nice drinking balance – not too sweet and not too sour – just right

The wine is pale straw in colour with green hues. The nose is wonderfully aromatic showing limes, passion fruit and floral characters while the palate is clean and refreshing with citrus and bath salts to back up the riper fruit flavours. The finish is clean and quite mineral-like with a lovely zing of acid down the palate.

Madfish Riesling may be enjoyed now and over the next year. Great with BBQ’d seafood on a warm summer evening. If it’s too cool to sit outside, then try it with Citrus Cured Trout, Tuna Poke or Fish Tacos.

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.
