Critic Notes

Firm reduction renders the nose impossible to assess today. By contrast there is good freshness and punch to the very rich and mouth coating flavors that deliver solid depth and length on the moderately rustic finale. This is sufficiently structured to warrant allowing it 6 to 8 years of cellaring. Dec 2016, www.burghound.com

Timo Mayer - bring back the funk!
Despite Timo’s multi-generational family history of winemaking in the Wuttemburg (Baden) region of Germany, his ascendancy into the wine world was not the familiar path of simply taking over the family farm. Timo left Germany to explore the world and ended up in Australia in 1991, fell in love with a girl from Melbourne and spent the next few years ...
