Mayer Yarra Valley Chardonnay 2015


Timo Mayer has retired from being joint winemaker at Gembrook Hill and is now focussing solely on his own vineyard at “Bloody Hill”, his family’s property on the slopes of Mt Toolebewong near Healesville.

I brought this wine up in the second half of 2016 but I’m only now getting around to promoting it. I guess the advantage of that is that it sits in my cellars in Singapore getting some nice age on it rather than cluttering up space in your wine fridge. It’s now smack bang in the middle of its drinking window.
