Three legends are involved in the Domaine Epis and Epis and Williams wines, two of them in their own lifetime. They are long-term Essendon guru and former player Alec Epis, who owns the two quite separate vineyards and brands; Stuart Anderson, who directs winemaking, with Alec doing all the hard work; and the late Laurie Williams, the father of viticulture in the Macedon region and the man who established the Flynn and Williams vineyard in 1976. Alec Epis purchased that vineyard from Laurie Williams in '99, and as a mark of respect (and with Laurie's approval) continued to use his name, in conjunction with his own.
This Chardonnay is developing some consistency with style and flavours. Nice minerals flavours with minimum oak used in fermentation. Superb balance and lovely smart Chardonnay fruit. The colours and flavours are a little advanced for its age but that only serves to make this wines highly defined wine of style.
