Region, Subregion, Country:
The Yarra Valley is our home and where it all began for Innocent Bystander. It has a wine history that dates back well over 100 years, however it’s reputation has been cemented in the last 15 years, largely thanks to the fantastic Pinot Noir and Chardonnay produced here. It’s the soils, climate and the combination of cool mountainside vineyards and warmer, valley floor sites that provide the diversity and complexity of flavours and aromas that make our Yarra Valley wines so spectacular. While we’re at home in the valley we also love a few styles of wine that don’t grow so well around here. When that happens we look elsewhere to get the best grapes we can. That means we get to make fresh, bright King Valley Prosecco and luscious Swan Hill Moscato as well as taking juicy parcels of Tempranillo from Heathcote and zesty King Valley Pinot Gris.
