2018 Ten Minutes by Tractor ‘Wallis’ Pinot Noir
Region: Mornington Peninsula , VIC
Winemaker: Imogen Dillon, Martin Spedding
Established Date: 2000
Following Burgundian principles, this wine is crafted with 10% whole bunches of Pinot noir which are fermented and left to macerate for 30 days on skins in concrete vats. Once the wine is pressed, the wine was transferred to 25% new 228 litre French oak barrels for 11 months for natural malolactic fermentation before bottling unfined and with minimal filteration.
Awesome big style of pinot noir showing what they can do down in Mornington. Lots of intense red fruit on the noise, well integrated notes of oak on the palate and fine tannins. Opens up with time in the glass leading to some herbaceous notes.
