Editors notes

Dixon Creek vineyard, Cherry and savory herb nose, bright sweet cherry fruit on the palate, juicy and warm mouthfeel, a bit of tannin grip on the savoury/dried herb finish. The whole bunch adds another dimension of freshness to this evolving Variety in Victoria

Yarra had a great run in this year with enough rain, enough sun, and everything else that is needed for a great Vintage (-covid issues ). There are nine wines this year eight of them 100 % wholebunch . The Estate wines are environmentally sensitive grown, there is very little interference in the cellar (shed) , and are they are bottled unfined and unfiltered.

    "Sangio scents of red berries, cherry, bloody game meat, white pepper, dried, mixed Italian herbs. Juicy in the palate, riper red berry fruit characters but again the herbs, spice, gamey-savouriness, and amongst all that a weave of graphite-tinged, lacy tannin. Finishes dry, spicy, savoury, after that pleasurable juicy start. Yummo."

Locations

Australia

The Australian wine industry is the fourth-largest exporter in the world, exporting 760 million litres to countries such as the UK, France, Italy and Spain. It has been one of the most successful 'New World' wine producing countries. It has done this by formally exporting and marketing its wines as a whole, through Wine Australia. There is also a significant domestic market for Australian wines, with Australians consuming nearly 500 million litres of wine per year. The wine industry is a significant contributor to the Australian economy through production, employment, export and tourism.

Wine regions are in almost all the states with Victoria having 21 regions! Read more about key wine regions such as Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley and local to New South Wales, Cowra, Southern Highlands and Mudgee.

Victoria

The wine region of Victoria has the highest number of grapevines than any other state in Australia. It is home to over 600 wineries and well-known regions such as Yarra Valley, Heathcote, and Rutherglen. Victoria is situated in the southeastern corner of Australia where due to the location, the climate has a cool maritime influence and is known for its outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, along with producing Australia’s most famed dessert Muscat and Topaque wines.

There are a number of different terroir levels throughout the wine region of Victoria which leads to the production of different ranges of wines. In the southern region of Victoria, the vines are regulated by the cool winds of the Bass Strait. Central Victoria consists of mostly flat terrain that tends to be drier and warmer than the rest of Victoria, which results in more fruit concentrated wines. It may be surprising to note that Victoria is the third most productive wine region in Australia, seeing as it does not have as many areas suitable for viticulture, which has resulted in the cellar door culture of Victoria being concentrated with smaller, but more personal boutique wineries.

Yarra Valley

The Yarra Valley is a wine region known for producing outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The region has become a leading wine tourism destination, popular for weekend trips as it is located only an hour’s drive northeast of Melbourne.

The cool climate region has some of the oldest soils in the world, and produces terrific Chardonnays in the leaner, acid-driven style. Long gone are the days of excessively oaked and oily Chardonnays. Superb Pinot Noir is cultivated with tremendous results. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc and even Sparkling wines of premium quality are also worth seeking out.

Yarra Valley is the oldest wine region in Victoria with the first vines planted in 1838 at Yering Station. Reg Egan founded the iconic Wantirna Estate in 1963, followed by Dr Bailey Carrodus in 1969 who founded equally lauded Yarra Yering in the foot of the Warramate Hills. Nowadays a fleet of new world wine makers and growers are making sure Yarra Valley stays at the forefront of Victorian wine production. Key wineries to look out for are Mayer, William Downie and Macforbes.

The region in 2009 suffered in the Black Saturday fires, with an estimated 25% of all production was impacted.

About the brand Mayer

In 1999, Timo Mayer established Mayer on the slopes of Mt Toolebewong, Healesville, with his partner Rhonda Ferguson. Also head winemaker at Gembrook Hill Vineyard, Timo makes his own wines from a 2.6 hectare plot on the vineyard, named 'Bloody Hill', because of the effort to walk up and down it every day.

Timo interferes as little as possible in the growing and winemaking process, and the red wines are unfined and unfiltered to show the real expression of the land. The Mayer Close Planted Pinot Noir was listed in some of the hottest, bio-driven wine lists in London. Mayer exports to the UK, Germany, Denmark, Singapore and Japan.
