2020 Bloody Hill 'Villages' Chardonnay
Rivar is the son of Timo Mayer, the charismatic and wild German native that has famously made 'Funky' wines in the Yarra Valley for the last few decades.
It's not often you see the younger generation dialling things back from their parents style of wine making but here we are. Bloody Hill is Rivar Mayer's more fruit forward wine label. This is from a neighbouring vineyard in the Yarra, a cool and refreshing style of Chardonnay with a bite to it.
Where: Yarra Valley
How: Feels very modern and crisp, chill it down and have it with a fish supper
