2020 Bloody Hill 'Villages' Sauvignon Blanc
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. Zippy, feels like it was made as a refreshment, lots of citrus but perfectly formed. We really enjoyed this one.
Where: Yarra Valley
What: Sauvignon Blanc
How: This is made for a hot day, after scrambling to find a place in the shade, drink it straight from the bottle.
