Description

Ten Minutes by Tractor needs little introduction. Owners Martin and Karen Spedding purchased the estate in back in 2003. The ‘home’ vineyards (McCutcheon, Wallis and Judd) are the three original vineyards which formed the Ten Minutes By Tractor estate - all 10 minutes by Tractor apart. They are all located in Main Ridge, the coolest and highest part of the Mornington Peninsula. Despite their close proximity and the use of similar vinification methods, the single vineyard wines are distinctly different from one another. This is a result of their different elevations, orientations and soils.

Handpicked and hand sorted and (mostly) destemmed (some whole bunch used in separate parcels). Cold soak for 4-5 days. Wild yeast fermentation in a mixture of concrete and stainless steel fermenters. 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

Selected from the Main Ridge vineyards –‘up the hill', this wine speaks of the subregion with lifted spice – hints of cinnamon, cardamon and crushed autumn leaves intertwined with a potpourri of strawberry, red fruit, rose petal & violets. A mouth filling palate with beautiful balance and length.
