Strawberries & Moscate, Innocent Bystander


Yarra Valley's Innocent Bystander winery has released its iconic pink Moscato in a slimline can. It's come just in time for spring and summer social activities like race day picnices, beach days, barbecues and backyard parties. 

Try it alongside fresh summer berries and double cream, crêpes with lemon syrup and orange zest, Belgian waffles with berry compote, or, for cheese board enthusiasts, team with blue cheese and pear.

Simply chill and pour into a wine glass, or enjoy out and about from the can with a (paper, silicon, or steel) straw.

It’s also superb in cocktails. Mix it with gin over ice, or for the ultimate summer chill, try an extrarefreshing Moscato Granita.

Smells of: fairy floss, blackcurrant, Turkish delight and mandarin peel.

Tastes like: intense strawberry, violets, honeycomb, with a well-balanced sweetness.

Innocent Bystander Moscato is vibrant in colour and full of delicate berry flavours. The delicious blend will have you tasting intense strawberry, violet and honeycomb. It’s a beautifully balanced sweet treat that is a firm favourite with Moscato fans across Australia.

Alc/vol: 5.5%

Since its first release over 10 years ago, the naturally pink (and naturally delicious) Moscato continues to receive high praise from some of Australia’s leading wine critics.


Australia’s ‘first summer of cans’

Innocent Bystander isn’t afraid to break a few wine industry conventions, after all, they serve all their wines from draught taps at their home in Healesville. So, it made perfect sense to pop their popular, pink Moscato into a can.

The cans are portable, convenient and easy to open. There’s no need to crack a whole bottle for a mid-week tipple, plus designated drivers can easily keep track with each can the equivalent of 1.1 standard drinks.

Mat Janes, Head of Innocent Bystander said “We’re super excited to be putting our effervescent starlet back in cans. Innocent Bystander Moscato is the leading premium sparkling Moscato in the country with bright berry aromas and gorgeously decadent flavours, making it perfectly suited to the convenience of cans”, he said.


How it’s made

Innocent Bystander Moscato is made using a blend of Black Muscat and Muscat Gordo grapes, sourced from Victoria’s Swan Hill region.

The grapes are harvested during the cool of the night, then chilled and crushed, with six hours of skin contact to get the perfect blush of pink from the Black Muscat.

The Moscato is gently effervescent with a fun fruitiness that is light on alcohol at 5.5%.
