About The Pack

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. Here you can taste six of our favourites from the outstanding 2021 full Timo Mayer release.

2021 Timo Mayer Close Planted Pinot Noir

Timo Mayer's Close Planted Pinot Noir is one of the Yarra Valley's most sought after wines.

Grown on his small estate 8km South of Healesville, this wine can come and go with barely a whisper of it being released, so intense is the want of his adoring and loyal fan base. It is a slightly wild and fascinating style of Pinot.

The close plantings force the vines to do battle for the lion's share of the natural resources; water, minerals and nutrients. The belief being that great wines are made in the vineyard and a vineyard that struggles bears fruit with the most character and intensity.

Do yourself a favour and explore one of the Yarra's most idiosyncratic wines. The Close Planted is as individual as it is outstanding

2021 Timo Mayer The Doktor Pinot Noir

This is the wilder version of Pinot Noir from Yarra Valley cult favourite Timo Mayer.

The Dr. Mayer Pinot Noir is 100% whole bunch fermented, Timo using the extra stalk component to drag out addition tannin and texture. He has a particular affinity with stalkier Pinot Noir, you can hear his passion in the way he talks about it.

The 2020 is wildly aromatic, powerful and densely concentrated. Only tiny quantities made in the low-yielding 2020 vintage.

If Pinot Noir with swagger is your game, you need an appointment with the Doktor.

2021 Timo Mayer Syrah

Timo Mayer only makes a tiny amount of Syrah each year.

The majority of the Mayer vineyard is planted to Pinot Noir but a small amount of Syrah makes an appearance on the upper reaches of the Hill. He makes the Syrah in the same way as his charismatic Doktor Mayer Pinot Noir with 100% whole bunches during ferment.

In this part of the Yarra it is possible to make sublime Syrah. Timo's is ethereal, ferrous and a little mysterious, an excellent example of the variety's potential in the region.

Lovers of spicy, detailed Syrah with power and structure - you'll want to try this... But you'll need to be quick.

2021 Timo Mayer Gamay

It's fair to say Timo Mayer loves him some whole-bunch/carbonic maceration action.

It works brilliantly when applied to lighter red varieties. Case in point - this Gamay has come up trumps...

The fruit was grown from vines in Dixon Creek in the northern Yarra, and we all know that great wine begins as great fruit. In the hands of Timo, this variety really sings.

Gamay can be a simple affair, but this one is wild; crunchy whole bunchiness, but still plush and juicy. Timo knocks it out of the park once again.

2021 Timo Mayer Cabernet

Whole-bunch ferments with Syrah and Pinot Noir, are very in vogue at the moment, but whole-bunch with Cabernet? Are you crazy?! Well, don't knock it 'til you've tried it...

Timo Mayer's Cabernet is 100% whole-bunch, the man does not do things by halves. The benefit here is that the tannins and textural elements of the wine can be derived from the stalks and seeds as well as the skins and it drastically reduces your need for a heavy oak influence to impart structure. Of course, this also means that the wine is fresher, more 'alive' in its youth, and doesn't require decades in the cellar to look the goods.

If this wine could talk it would spruik you a Ginsburg poem, a little left of centre yet undeniably beautiful and thought-provoking all at once. Just try it, you might just fall in love with Cabernet in a way you never have before.

2021 Timo Mayer Tempranillo

Timo Mayer has turned Tempranillo up to 11 here with this release, and it's a cracker.

Using fruits from the Gembrook Vineyard and putting them through his signature whole bunch fermentation, the rustic and earthy characters of this variety really shine. Savoury, herbaceous, yet plummy with a hint of olive tapenade.

It's everything you love about the variety but with the vibrance and energy turned right up. If you love this Spanish grape, do yourself a favour and get your hands on one of these while you can, it won't last long!

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.
