Innocent Bystander Mea Culpa Syrah 2018, Yarra Valley, Vic

by | May 2, 2022

Subtle black cherry, vanilla with a touch of sappy new oak. Powerful, full bodied palate with darker fruits – blackberry and blackcurrant flavours. Ends with a dry tannic finish, coming from the whole bunch fermentation.

Ratings Key:

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)

Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.

Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)

A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.

Recommended (Score range 89-91)

An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
