Stoney & tight with white peach and Lime zest on the nose. Direct and saline on the palate with ripe white peach and sweet citrus fruit. Tightens up on the finish with clean acidity and very good length. A beautiful and pristine Chardonnay for summer. From the Northwest in the Yarra Valley, the fruit here is from an old Bress Vineyard. - Winery Note
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!
