Innocent Bystander Pinot Noir 2017
|Region||Australia, Victoria, Yarra Valley|
Fresh strawberry and rhubarb flavors show an appealing green edge, with plenty of juicy tension on the crisp finish. A note of matcha lingers. Drink now. 3,800 cases imported.
This is a likable wine that offers notes of ripe blueberries, plums and strawberries held together by a floral and earthy core. The palate is light-bodied and soft-edged. The fruit feels a little watery but there's enough acidity to prop it up.
Candied apple and maraschino cherry notes mark the nose of the fruit-forward 2017 Pinot Noir. It's a simple, light-bodied wine with minimal tannin and crisp acids. Drink it over the next few years.
