About The Wine
A satisfying rendition of Yarra Valley Chardonnay from the second generation Rivar Ferguson-Mayer.
This is an elegant, quiet Chardonnay from a property formerly owned and managed by Bress. It's made with little tinkering - as with all the Bloody Hill wines, it's about capturing freshness and easy drinking appeal as a young wine.
It's cool, fleshy witha crisp, clean finish. A typical modern expression of the Yarra Valley from a young winemaker on the come up.
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.
