About

About The Wine

Pinot Noir is the backbone of the Lyons Will vineyard. 

With a careful selection of clones at their disposal (D5V12, D4V2 and 115), owners and proprietors Oli and Renata have got the potential to make some of the region's finest Pinot Noirs from their block over the coming years.

As with most Macedon Ranges Pinot Noirs, this is a delicate wine of subtle nuance and gracefulness. The fruit is all picked by hand, processed by hand, a gentle touch in the winery revealing a wine that tells the story of the vineyard and the season.

The quality on offer here is excellent.

Lyons Will Pinot Noir is a brilliant new addition to the famed premium Pinot Noirs of the Macedon Ranges and a name to watch, no doubt about it.

About Lyons Will

Lyons Will is one of the hidden gems of the Macedon Ranges.

This stunning 4ha vineyard was originally planted to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in 1996 by Bob and Barabara Farawell and has really blossomed since being purchased by husband and wife Oliver Rapson and Renata Morello.

Oli is a viticulturalist and saw the potential for this beautiful site. In 2013 they planted a small amount of Gamay and Riesling on the property which are thriving, as well as extending their plantings of Pinot Noir.

It's a small family operation. Oli and Renata craft the wines together, everything is done by hand with a strong emphasis on sustainability. Their first releases are electric. Lyons Will is one of the most exciting new projects to emerge from the Macedon Ranges in the last decade.

Halliday Wine Companion

"Estate-grown clones D5V12, D4V2 and 115, open-fermented, 14 days on skins, matured in French oak (33% new) for 16 months. Bright, clear crimson-purple; an altogether impressive wine, all its parts in alignment; the fragrant red flower aromas presage a red cherry, damson plum and spice palate. The wine glides along and across the mouth, fruit to the fore, but cedary oak makes a quiet statement as it joins with superfine tannins on the finish and aftertaste." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

Additional Info

From The Producer

This bottle of Pinot Noir was picked on the 29th of March, 2015. A mild spring and dry summer created perfect growing conditions for a fantastic vintage, helping the development of palate and nose.

Our 20 year old vines were hand pruned, hand picked and carefully manicured throughout the season, ensuring only the best fruit goes into each bottle.

Enjoy!
