Our very charming enfant terrible; Innocent Bystander is made to be drunk while watching the world go by. They are playful and exotic wines made in earnest.

90 Points. Bright and lively pear fruit aroma with a gentle touch of spicy oak; clean and fresh with a fine hint of citrus lingering on the finish. James Halliday Wine Companion 2010 Jun-09
90 Points & 4 Stars. "Admirable for its directness and simplicity, a cleansing, refreshing chardony with little human intervention. Fine and precise lemon and nectarine aromas, some richer tropical fruit flavours—really bright and fresh, cool and elegant." Penguin Good Australian Wine Guide 2009, Nick Stock (Australia), 2009
89 Points. "I suppose you could say this is Giant Steps entry-level wine but its a lot better than that. Minerally mealy aromas with touches of nectarine and quince. The palate is lean and slightly angular with a fresh crunchy feel. Great value wine. " West Australian, Ray Jordan (Australia), 15 Nov 08
Winery Tasting Notes
Lemon sorbet, dried mangos, fresh figs and white peaches. Juicy fruit, cashews and meringue. Steely mineral notes, and tight on the palate with flavours of dried pineapple. Soft tannins and textually enjoyable with a good length. Creamy oak finish. Food: Steamed Barramundi or fresh Kingfish. Washed rind cheese.
