The Wine

Vineyard Components: Coolart Road 84%, Paradigm Hill 16% 

Handpicked and hand sorted and (mostly) destemmed (some whole bunch used in separate parcels) this fruit was fermented in a mixture of concrete and stainless steel fermenters. A cold soak for 4-5 days before a wild yeast fermentation with an average of 14 days on skins. The wine was then pressed to tank and racked to barrel keeping all the individual parcels separate Aged in a combination of old and new puncheons and barriques.

The deep red purple colour of this wine does not disappoint. A brooding mix of savoury characters; charcuterie and hints of leather together with blue and dark fruits and a striking raspberry edge. The palate is layered, sultry, and complex and will provide much joy in the years ahead. TMXT

About the Wine Maker

Ten Minutes by Tractor’s first labelled vintage took place in 2000, a partnership of 3 family owned vineyards coming together to produce wine for the first time under one label. Martin and Karen Spedding purchased the company in 2004 retaining the personal and commercial relationships with the founding growers of which you can find their names immortalised on some of the single vineyard bottlings each year. Fast forward to current day and Ten Minutes by Tractor has solidified themselves amongst some of the most sought after producers of the Mornington Peninsula producers along with arguably some of the best single vineyard Chardonnay and Pinot Noir bottlings in Australia. The epicentre of the winery’s history is firmly rooted in the subregion of Main Ridge, where several of their single vineyard wines are sourced from alongside owned and leased vineyards around Balnarring + Merricks.
