Timo Mayer Cabernet

Timo Mayer Cabernet

Regular price $60.00

A refreshing take on Bordeaux, I josh with Timo Mayer, ‘fuck that, this is Yarra Valley’ he blurts. Of course. It’s 100% whole bunch fermented, “this is cabernet as it should be, sell it to pinot noir drinkers. Drink this shit! That’s how I like to encourage it, cabernet made in a pinot cellar”. Oh, and stay tuned for the 2019 merlot, 100% whole bunch. No joke.

Pepper, green and white, whiff of beetroot, then the cassis, sweet and pretty. Lovely start through the perfume. Mouth-filling with sweet, berry-jammy fruit flavours with a corkscrew of fine, silty tannins. Flavours, exotic and intriguing, shift around the palate nervously. Tongue darts to seek out sweet, chewy, peppery, green. Wild style here, but it’s such a blast, and there’s a distinct slinkiness to the wine. Drink up. - Mike Bennie, The Wine Front.
