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 : The fruit was hand picked and then chilled overnight. • Hand sorted the next day and then 100% de-stemmed into small stainless steel fermenters. • The fruit was then cold soaked for approx. 5 days at 8˚C. • A natural ferment with light pump overs 1-2 times a day. • On skins for 18 days and then pressed to tank before being racked to barrel

An elegant wine with subtle hints of pink musk, violets and raspberry on the nose. It is well structured but needs a little time to open up. On the palate there is red and dark cherry fruit with earthy truffle undertones and background spice. The tannins are silky and plush and give a subtle grip on the finish. 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.
