Chardonnay 2020 - Mayer
✔ 10% When purchasing 12 or more bottles
Fresh and funky, with aromas flint and gun smoke giving way to citrus and tropical fruits. A full, textural palate is well balanced by vibrant acidity. Excellent persistence.
Fruit is handpicked and pressed in whole bunches. Juice is transferred to old hogsheads to undergo wild fermentation as well as full malolactic fermentation. In spring the wine is racked into stainless steel to settle for 4 months before being bottled without fining of filtration.
Bring back the funk!
Timo Mayer is a hip little winery that produces hand crafted, single vineyard wines. They believe that wines are made in the vineyard and therefore try to interfere with the natural winemaking process as little as possible. All of their wines are unfined and unfiltered to reflect the true expression of the land.
A hip little winery in the Yarra Valley messing around with 100% wholebunch.
Timo Mayer grew up in Germany, where his family have been making wine for over 400 years. He moved to Australia and studied winemaking at Wagga Wagga, before working at De Bortoli and Gembrook in the Yarra Valley and establishing Mayer Wines in 2000. Having made his name with elegant, innovative Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, he’s recently started experimenting with varieties like Nebbiolo and Gamay, and continues to lead the charge for elegant, complex wines that reflect the Yarra Valley’s cool climate.
