"What is left to say about Timo Mayer, aside, he keeps on making outstanding, fascinating, wonderful wines. There's the howling at moon, baying at the wind, shirt tearing and pant splitting stuff, of course, and his incredible, unique site" Winefront Australia Nathan visited Timo Mayer on a Saturday lunchtime at his winery on the Bloody Hill in the Yarra Valley. Timo grew up in the village of Fellbach, near Stuttgart (the same village as our rock star pinot winemaker Rainer Schnaitmann) and learned his craft there before emigrating to Australia in the 1990's. The Bloody Hill 'it's called that 'cause it's bloody steep, Nathan' is a 6 acre plot on rocky soils. Timo likes to use a proportion of whole bunch to give his wines a particular stalky savouriness, which is very much a trademark of his Pinots. His production is in line with organic practices, and the wines are bottled without fining or filtration. These are cool climate wines with great purity, elegance and intensity and they've found a cult following amongst critics and sommeliers. 

"No overt oak influence leaves raspberry, cranberry and cherry fruits to the fore. Some spice and savoury notes, fresh acidity. Fine tannins on the finish."
