    La Rioja Alta is widely recognised to be one of the finest wineries in the region and known for defining the traditional oak-aged style of Rioja. Founded on July 10th 1890 by five families, the descendants are still all important shareholders to this day. Indeed Guillermo de Aranzabal, president of La Rioja Alta, is the fifth generation of his family to work in the business. La Rioja Alta owns four wineries – two in Rioja, one in Rias Baixas and one in Ribera del Duero. Producing around 2.25 million bottles annually as a group (1.4m is sold under the brand La Rioja Alta) the company owns 554 hectares, 392 of which are in Rioja. There are two grounds on which La Rioja Alta remains firmly traditional  - it only uses American oak, and indeed makes its own barrels, and also releases its wines comparatively late to other producers having aged them in both barrel and bottle and only putting them on the market once they are ready to drink.

    Pinot Noir, Innocent Bystander, Yarra Valley

    Aromas of cherries, Campari, raspberries, fennel seeds with hints of bergamot tea and orange zest. Lively on the palate with fresh, ripe raspberries with a beetroot earthiness. A wine of purity, silken texture and slippery tannins. Approachable now, but beguiling layers hint to an intriguing future.

    The winery changed hands in May 2016, with one family comapny, 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 have made the intelligent decision to build a new winery in Healesville, just across the parking lot from Giant Steps. And they are quickly signing contracts with all the grape growers that Phil has used for Innocent Bystander so that the style of the wines remains unchanged. That style - wines that are regional and varietal, reflecting the soil, climate and topography of the cool climate in the Yarra Valley – has been the base upon which the reputation of Innocent Bystander has been built.
