This Pinot Noir has aromas of boysenberries, cherry and blueberry with earthy notes of dried spices. On the palate, this wine has a velvety mouthfeel with soft savoury tannins and plush flavours of red cherry and spice, which carry through onto the elegant finish.

This wine is produced from a number of vineyards that span the Yarra Valley, from Paul's Range at Dixons Creek in the north, across to Bastard Hill in the very cool southern region of the Upper Yarra. The vineyards are chosen for their high diurnal temperature range, which result in wines with high natural acidity and low pH. Yields are less than seven tonnes per hectare.

This winery changed hands in May 2016, with one family company, Brown Brothers, taking it off the hands of another, its founder, Phil Sexton. So associated is Innocent Bystander with the Yarra Valley that the new owners decided to build a new cellar door in Healesville, just across the parking lot from Giant Steps, but the wines are now being made at the Brown Brothers winery in Milawa, just 200 kilometres north of the Yarra Valley.
