2021 Ten Minutes by Tractor 10X Chardonnay
Region: Mornington Peninsula , VIC
Winemaker: Imogen Dillon, Martin Spedding
Established Date: 2000
100% whole bunch pressed Chardonnay. 100% wild yeast fermentation and then mostly time in new French barriques for 9 months of oak maturation, bottled unfined and filtered
Floral, white flower and lime citrus notes lift from the glass, an enticing entree to lovely sweet citrus fruit on the front palate and a burst of white peach and nectarine. This wine has great concentration and a fine long mineral and textured finish.
The original winery started in 1997 with three family owned vineyards in Main Ridge, all ten minutes by tractor apart. In 2003, Martin Spedding bought Ten Minutes by Tractor Wine Co. from the three families and since then we have opened a new cellar door, restaurant and added four new vineyards.
All our vineyards have their own unique character with different aspects, slopes, soils, altitude and cool ocean breezes which flow through the valleys from Bass Strait, Western Port and Port Phillip. As described by Martin Spedding “Put simply, our future is clear – grow the best fruit we can, make wines that express the character of their origin and continue to put them in front of people who appreciate the difference.”
