Ten Minutes By Tractor is the convergence of a series of journeys that began almost 30 years ago. Over several years, four families came together, all sharing the dream of crafting beautiful wines which are expressive of their heritage. Between these four families (and still independently) they bought up some of the most premium, and perfect, vineyard sites in the cool climate Mornington Peninsula region.
From first sniff, this is a quintessential Ten Minutes by Tractor Chardonnay, with flashes of nougat, a drizzle of honey over white peach fruit. Despite the nose suggesting a big wine, this is actually more medium bodied than expected, the back end punctuated by grapefruit acidity, and delivering a wine that is less bombastic and more egalitarian than some of the Estate and Single Vineyard Chardonnay releases while retaining the classic house style. If anything, this will appreciate more time in bottle to grow through the finish.
Give it a whirl with spaghetti carbonara but in the classic formula with pecorino, guanciale and no cream or pea risotto, grilled shrimp with apricot glaze & almond or honeycrisp apple pizza with balsamic onions
