Ten minutes by Tractor is one of Australia's finest wineries. The winery is run by Martin Spedding who has overseen the rise of the winery to almost cult status. It is located at Main Ridge, one of the coolest and highest parts of the Mornington peninsula.
The 10X Pinot Noir is made in small open-topped fermenters with wild yeasts and matured for 11-15 months in French oak, this is an elegant and polished Australian Pinot.
Dark ruby coloured, this has a sappy raspberry nose with a hint of bacon, the ripe fruit apparently from the start. The palate is full and powerful, with concentrated raspberry flavours and a late hint of dried fruit, dried herbs and red meat. Great balance between the need for appealing fruit flavour and structure. A comprehensive Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir from a classic year.
