About The Wine
The Chardonnay vines on Lyons Will in the Macedon Ranges were planted in 1996.
The cool climate and favourable soils in this part of the world produce stunning Chardonnays of elegance and finesse. No exception here from Oli and Renata at Lyons Will.
This is a powerful wine with a distinct spine of minerality and a beautifully judged oak.
There's clearly something special happening at Lyons Will.
This Chardonnay is a class act and offers great value for money for those seeking premium expressions of cooler-climate Chardonnay.
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.
