Region: Yarra Valley - Victoria
Winemaker: Timo Mayer
Varietal(s): 100% Sangiovese
Timo Mayer's first crack at a Sangiovese. 100% whole bunch. 1000% attitude.
Sadly, no Gamay in the 2019 Timo Mayer line up, but the upside is we do get a few new delicious things to try in its place!
This new Sangiovese from Dixon's Creek is a belter. It's an electric, nervy example of the variety. The 100% whole bunch ferment to many would seem like madness when applied to Sangiovese. The variety has tannin in spades.
For some reason, it works a treat in this wine. It's a lighter expression than you might expect, the juice shines ruby red in the glass. The fruit is sweet and spicy, the tannins are super fine and detailed.
It's a one-of-a-kind Sangiovese from a one of a kind winemaker.
