As the name suggests, this wine comes from a densely planted portion of Timo’s 'Bloody Hill' vineyard, where the vines are positioned just 75 cm apart from each other. This offers a new dimension to the already beautiful wines from this site. Alongside more structure and grip than the others, this is a fragrant, earthy expression with notes of spice, redcurrants, wild herbs and a touch of mushroom on the finish.

Timo Mayer left his native Germany years ago for the Yarra Valley, where he organically farms a 2.5-hectare plot called Bloody Hill, “because it’s bloody steep!” From here, and a couple of other single vineyard sites, he produces handcrafted wines which favour elegance and purity over muscle and showiness.
His winemaking philosophy is “bring back the funk!” His signature is the use of whole bunches during fermentation increasing complexity and giving silkier tannins and freshness. Don't let his easy-going character fool you, these are serious wines made with meticulous skill and care, they taste fantastic now but will age gracefully.
