Lyons Will Gamay 2018 .Our second vintage from these young vines. Handpicked from young vines on the 21st March 2018. 60% of the fruit was destemmed, placed in open vats and cold soaked for 5 days prior to fermentation. The remaining fruit underwent semi-carbonic maceration, 100% whole bunch. The fruit was then basket pressed and transferred into old oak barrels to mature for 10 months. This wine is unfiltered and unfined.

Lyons Will Estate is a family operation, Oliver and Renata craft their wines together, everything is done by hand, with a strong emphasis on sustainability and traditional wine making techniques. Their ethos is simple ‘look after the vines and the vines will look after the wine’. Good grapes coupled with a minimalist wine making approach results in a good honest wine with a great acid balance and a clean linear finish.

Renata Morello – Winemaker & Vigneron

Daughter of an Italian migrant and 5th generation Anglo-australian family, Renata has had the luxury of being able to tap into a wealth encouragement from a hard working set of parents.

It was Renata’s dad Joe – a migrant from Calabria who really set the agenda when it came to her passion for food and wine. Joe was an avid wine collector, but not all wines were collectible, most were just wines he loved to drink. From early adulthood Renata had the privilege of trying some amazing wines that he had cellared for 10-15, sometimes 20, years. And hence developed a keen taste for fine wine.

Renata studied Physiotherapy at Uni and then decided to travel qualified, spending a lot of time in Italy with family or just jaunting around Europe. She originally had visions of owning a wine bar, very much similar to the style of bars she saw when living in Torino, Italy. When Ollie started talking about vineyards and wineries, it wasn’t much of a stretch from what she had in mind so it didn’t take much to jump onboard the idea of Lyons Will. Also the appeal was very much around the country lifestyle and to a degree future plans for a family.

Divide and conquer should be the Lyons Will strapline. In essence this means that Renata is in charge of the direction and the winemaking of both the Riesling and Gamay – taking inspiration from recent trips to Beaujolais and Burgundy. Whilst fairly new to the winemaking world, Renata has spent a good part of three years working alongside Shaun Crinion (Dappled) learning and developing her craft.

In her spare time she completed a PhD in public health, became a mother of two toddlers (Charlie 4 and Julian 3) and still works for Monash as a researcher.
