Mayer Pinot Noir & Syrah
Winery : Timo Mayer
MIXED PINOTS SIX PACK contains two each of Mayer 2021 Yarra Valley, Dr Mayer and Bloody Hill Pinots
Timo Mayer comes from a family of German vignerons that have been making wine for 400 years. After coming to Australia in 1990, he completed oenology studies at Charles Sturt in Wagga. He established his 2.5ha Mayer vineyard near Healesville in 1999 on very steep slopes, hence the name 'Bloody Hill' given to some of his wines.
2021 Mayer Yarra Valley (Close Planted) Pinot Noir: From a close-planted section of the vineyard. An alluring, subtle style - one of sweet red cherry fruit, and gentle spices. Medium weight but persistence. Diam cork and wax closure.
2021 Dr Mayer Yarra Valley Pinot Noir: Same block selection as the Mayer but 100% whole bunch. In Timo's hands the whole bunch is never in your face, just an ever-so-slightly smoky whiff subsumed by dark fruits and spices. Diam cork and wax closure.
2021 Bloody Hill Pinot Noir: Always a deliciously fresh and light Pinot Noir style that goes down a treat. Flavoursome with gentle persistence. Timo is a master winemaker and he knows how to fashion something for straight out enjoyment.
2020 Mayer Yarra Valley Syrah: Timo sources fruit for his Syrah from a small portion of the Bloody Hill Vineyard. 100% whole bunch. Dark bramble berry fruits with a spicy and a sleek mouthfeel. Cool climate style shiraz with a leaner, finer structure than Barossa Valley.
