Lyons Will Estate Riesling 2020


I skirted the edge of the Macedon Ranges just over 12 months ago on my way through the Victorian countryside. In hindsight, I wish I spent some time in the district. Lyons Will Estate owner and winemaker Dr Renata Morello got in touch recently and sent a few of her wines to sample - gee I wish I knew about these guys earlier. This is a fabulous Riesling.

From a vineyard 540 metres above, only 60 cases of Riesling was produced. Seeing three months of old oak, some residual sweetness only heightens its appeal.

Limes and florals, this is dangerously delicious. A gravitating textural pull lassos you across the table for more. Quite cleansing, this is a very well made Riesling that is beautifully balanced. Green apples are laced throughout with a slight crunch. A fine chalkiness to close but I just keep going back. Big love for this.

Drink to five years.
