About The Wine
Here is some Mayer wine to drink in the sun put together by the talented hands of Rivar Ferguson-Mayer
It's Syrah Rose that spent just a day on its skins and fermented in barrel..
It's full of herbal, floral and spicy, pale pink with red fruits and frisky acidity on close. Just a delightful, bouncy Rose and lovely drinking on the balcony, picnic rug or in bed on Sunday morning.
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.
The Bloody Hill range is now the responsibility of Timo's talented son Rivar Mayer Ferguson, and has dropped the Mayer on the label from the 2021 releases. They continue to be superb value wines.
