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, winemaking frequently utilises a generous use of whole bunch but most impressive is Timo's cheerful, amusing nature.

Other Reviews....
I like that Timo does his tastings with the red wines first, then into the real deal with white wine.
Fragrant white at just shy of medium weight, licked at by Jura-esque saline and gently sherry-like characters, nutty savouriness amongst a cavalcade of red apple, pretty grapefruit notes and cumquat and light vanilla cream. Beautiful wine, slips over the palate with a gentle slickness before fining up in a powdery dryness mingling with briny minerality. Wonderful expression. Drink: 2024-2030.
