2021 Ten Minutes by Tractor 10X Pinot Noir
Region: Mornington Peninsula, VIC
Winemaker: Imogen Dillon, Martin Spedding
Established Date: 2000
The 10X Pinot Noir is created with destemmed grapes that are fermented on wild yeasts and have 30 days macerating on skins in a concrete tank. Following pressing, the wine is transferred to new and old 228 litre French oak barrels for 11 months. The natural malolactic fermentation occurs in the barrel before it is bottling unfined and with minimal filtration.
Char and earth combine with black cherry and pepper spice revealing the outset layers to this subtle yet alluring cool climate Pinot Noir.
Sommelier’s Recommendation 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.
