Bright cherry red with juicy strawberry and savoury, cured meat aromas. Sweet berry fruit translates on the palate and is well balanced by savoury, herbal notes and fine whole bunch tannins. Long, ripe finish.

Fruit is handpicked and fermented in whole bunches, with 10 days carbonic maceration and an additional 10 days on skins. The fruit is then pressed, and the juice is transferred to old puncheons to mature for 10 months. The wine is bottled without fining of filtration. No additions except for a small amount of SO2 at bottling.

Fruit is grown in the old Roundstone vineyard from the first plantings of Gamay in the Yarra Valley, now 20 years old. The vineyard is located near Steels Creek in the warmer part of the Valley; however, the climate is still relatively cool for Australia with some maritime influence, with rainfall in winter and spring, relatively cool, dry summers


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.
