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....
Timo was actually there when they planted the site to nebbiolo, somewhere in the late 1990s.
Whoa, vibrant. Elevated perfume, smells like a herb garden in full flight, a touch of red cherry, but backseat in that wild scree. Lovely stuff. The palate is more red fruited, spicy and herbal again, balanced in its elements and tightens in a web of silty, mineral-charged tannin. Structure, tension, length, poise. A delight. Drink: 2024-2037.
