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.
