Some might think this pale pink Aussie moscato is a tad too sugary but I reckon it's the cheeriest drink around. While definitely sweet, it has plenty of refreshing, zingy acidity and spritz to balance that out, plus a feel-good Turkish delight note. Jane Faulkner Sydney Morning Herald 27 Jun-09
90 Points & 4 Stars "...no refrigerator should be without a couple of these stacked cold in the door. Smell of lifted pink muscat perfume and packs plenty of sweet fresh grape flavour, it is low in alcohol and about as refreshing as wine can get." Penguin Good Australian Wine Guide 2009, Nick Stock (Australia), 2009
Bloody Good "Typically of the Innocent Bystander label, the marketing of this is exemplary; clear, half bottle with crown seal, gorgeous light pink colour and just enough of this lightly fizzy sweetie to share with someone special. In the blind tasting too, it was a star; sweet strawberry flavours, fine, delicate and focused, gently sweet before a clean, crisp, lively but gentle finish." Quaff 2009, Peter Forrestal (Australia), 2009
4 Stars "Italian moscato has been a big hit in Australia, inspiring local winemakers to produce their own. Innocent Bystander, made from Murray Valley gordo and black muscat, is one of the best. The super-fresh, rose pink 2009 is like a mouthful of crushed muscatels, with a spritz of gas and zesty acidity adding zip. Delicious." Epicure - The AGE, Ralph Kyte Powell (Australia), 19 May 09
