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....
This is a mid-weighted savory wine, framed by just enough structural latticework to gently compress forestry notes, accents of dark cherry liqueur, mint and anise. Sangiovese's frisk and edge, palpable. Just. A little more salacious than usual, hinting at the voluminous ‘22 vintage, perhaps. Yet how can one not love something so dense, scrumptious and gorgeous. Drink or hold, ever so briefly.
