2021 Mayer Sangiovese Yarra Valley – Timo Mayer is a small farm producing hand crafted, single vineyard wines. They believe that wines are made in the vineyard and therefore try to interfere as little as possible in the natural winemaking process. All of their wines are unfined and unfiltered to show the true expression of the land. Their aim is to make wines with a point of difference and to really showcase region and varietal to their best ability.
This Sangiovese is sourced from a Dixon Creek vineyard. It showcases notes of cherry and savoury herb notes on the 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. Doesn’t get much better than this. Yum.
