About The Wine
This is one of the best value versions of Yarra Valley Syrah you will find at the moment.
Crafted by young Rivar Ferguson-Mayer, he includes 50% wole bunches in the ferment to add spice and srtucture to the woderfully floral style of Syrah he has picked from St Huberts in Coldstream.
Of all the 2020 releases of the Bloody Hill wines from the Mayer family, this is the most complete, balanced and seductive on release.
Pitch-perfect and absolutely stellar value for money here.
About Timo Mayer
German-born, enigmatic winemaker Timo Mayer is one of the great characters of the Yarra Valley. The words bombastic, charismatic and wild are as much applicable to the man as his wines.
From his close-planted Yarra Valley vineyard, evocatively named 'Bloody Hill', Timo carves out some astounding wines made with low levels of new oak and minimal additions.
The signature of Timo's winemaking style is his penchant for whole-bunch ferment. His wines have an ethereal quality, firm tannins and impeccable structure.
These are compelling and extremely limited wines that tell a unique story of the Yarra Valley.
