2020 Mayer Merlot
Yarra Valley's very own cult Germanic wine maker, here at City Wine Shop we love Timo Mayer - funny, charismatic and most importantly, very talented.
The signature of Timo's winemaking style is his penchant for whole-bunch ferment. His wines are nothing but novel in style, brimming with ethereal notes and structured - elegant tannin.
The 2020 Merlot was fermented with 100% whole bunch, a divisive technique for Merlot, but we cant say he doesn't pull this off beautifully. The fruit is dark and rich and plummy, intertwined with a stalky, leafy almost Campari aroma that adds traction and definition to the fruit.
