German born Timo Mayer, along with partner Rhonda Ferguson established Mayer in 1999, on the slopes of Mt Toolebewong, between Healesville & Woori Yallock. They produce a small range of hand crafted, single vineyard wines, believing that wines are made in the vineyard and not the winery. All wines are unfined and unfiltered to show the true expression of the vineyard. Vines are often close-planted, and winemaking frequently utilises a generous use of whole bunch.

Other Reviews....
From De Bortoli's gamay vineyard in Tarrawarra; 100% whole bunches, matured in seasoned hogsheads. Bright crimson purple. Rustic with red fruits and plenty of whole-bunch derived floral/potpourri and rhubarb stalk scents. On the palate, though, this is juicy, flavoursome and less tannic than the nose suggests. A tasty, drink-now food wine that's ready to rock. Drink 2022 - 2028.
