Wine Advocate 88 points - Pale ruby colored, the 2013 Pinot Noir gives notes of kirsch, cranberry sauce and raspberry preserves with hints of cinnamon stick and forest floor. Medium-bodied, it gives a good amount of juicy berry flavors supported by approachable chewy tannins. It finishes with good length but perhaps just a little simple. (Feb 2015)

Wine maker notes
Pinot noir is a "difficult” grape; to grow, to deal with in the winery and to find truly fine examples of. Great pinot noir creates a lasting impression on the palate and in the memory. Its aroma is often one of the most complex of all varietals and can be intense with a ripe-grape or black cherry aroma, frequently accented by a pronounced spiciness that suggests cinnamon,sassafras, or mint.

Producer
Innocent Bystander has forged a reputation for delivering some of the Yarra Valley’s most consistent, over-performing, affordable, varietal wines. Using 100% hand-picked fruit and non-intervention winemaking techniques these wines reflect Victoria’s cool climate, soil and topography. In 2014, experienced vigneron Phil Sexton extended this philosophy across the Tasman Sea to New Zealand adding two new cool climate regions - Central Otago and Marlborough - to Innocent Bystander’s portfolio.
