Boysenberry, black pepper, and dried leaves on the nose, this is an undeniable Mayer wine! Very juicy and intense on the palate, this is beautifully balanced with bitter chocolate dried cassis leaf and rich red berry fruit. 50 % whole bunch. GREAT SYRAH! From St Huberts road. - Winery Notes
Bloody Hill is a second label for Yarra Valley cult-winemaker, Timo Mayer. Timo and his son, Rivar, work together on the Bloody Hill wines, selecting the fruit and and working alongside growers that they have built relationships with over many years. In addition, Rivar has added new plantings to the Mayer estate specifically for Bloody Hill, which we're looking forward to seeing at maturity!
The word "Villages" has been added to the label from the 2020 vintage. This is in reference to the fact that the fruit for Bloody Hill is sourced from selected sites around the Yarra. For example, the Chardonnay is sourced from Panton Hill, from an old Bress Vineyard, the Syrah from Coldstream, and the Syrah/Tempranillo blend from Gembrook. It is a fantastic and delicious way to explore the differing subregions of the Yarra!
