2020 Bloody Hill 'Villages' Pinot Noir
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.
The fruit is from the Panton Hill in the Yarra Valley. It's fully destemmed, naturally fermented and sees only a tiny bit of oak. These wines are vibrant and fresh, made in a lighter style.
Where: Yarra Valley
What: Pinot Noir
How: A really fresh and beautiful Pinot here, silky tannins that are just begging for a slice of pizza
