Lyons Will Estate Pinot Noir 2018

 

A super Pinot! It floats through the mouth unobstructed. A great find from Lyons Will Estate, a small Macedon Ranges producer.

Made with 20% whole bunches and seeing French oak for 12 months, this is bright in the glass. The appearance entices the eye and the nose is immediately drawn to the glass. A chorus of cloves, bay leaf, plums, earth and undergrowth race for your attention. Classic Pinot characteristics wrapped up in a neat package yet there is even a slight scent of tomato bush. Delve deeper and a wash of cola slowly reveals itself. Well balanced and with a wonderful presence, it is long and persistent. A great Pinot hands down.
