The grapes to produce the Moscato Rosé Innocent Bystander are harvested in the cool of the night, the fruit was chilled and crushed, with six hours skin contact to extract a vibrant hint of pink from the Black Muscat grapes. The juice then underwent a cool fermentation in stainless- steel vats in order to retain freshness and trap the natural effervescence. Fermentation was stopped at 5.5% alcohol by chilling the wine before being bottled under pressure.
The fruit for this Moscato is sourced from a number of vineyard sites across the Swan Hill region of North West Victoria. Soils here are predominantly calcareous sandy loam. The wine is a blend of two different types of the Muscat grape: Muscat of Alexandria and Black Muscat.
