Lyons Will 2023 Gamay


Gamay is a perfect wine style for the Australian lifestyle. A lighter red with plenty of flavour that can be chilled on a warmer day. This is one of only a handful of gamays made in Victoria and owner/winemakers Renata Morello and Ollie Rapson have plenty of reason to be pleased. The wine is unashamedly based in the spiritual home of the variety, Beaujolais, with vibrant juby fruit flavours to the fore. Lyons Will, for those not familiar, is a boutique family-run winery in the Macedon Ranges. This wine is estate grown, unfined, unfiltered and Vegan friendly and so ticks a lot of hipster boxes. Stereotypes be damned. Pair this with  a charcuterie plate or a cheese platter. Lively and lovely; stylish and succulent. I liked it a lot. $47.
