The Wine

With a La Niña weather pattern controlling the season, the wet spring and start to the summer delayed bud burst and flowering. Below average temperatures and rainfall over summer allowed the grapes to ripen slowly but evenly, resulting in great concentration of flavour and good natural acidity. 

Winemaking: Fruit was handpicked and hand sorted, the fruit then chilled overnight. • Whole bunch pressed to stainless steel. • The juice was settled for 24 hrs then racked to barrel taking the light fluffy lees. • Fermented using indigenous yeasts. • Partial natural malolactic fermentation 73%. • Some occasional bâtonnage to individual barrels.

Aromas of flint and orange blossom lead to a silky, fine palate with elements of marmalade and grapefruit. There is a lovely purity and balance to this wine which reflects it class and years of toil in the vineyard. A linear line of acid underlying the fruit adds precision and a lovely persistence to the wine. 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.
