Tasting Notes

"It has its surly side and it's stern with tannin, contributing to that impression. But it's also fragrant and spicy and as it rests in the glass it builds flesh, and feels a bit more fancy. This wine was tasted on two occasions, 6 months apart, and it showed much better the second time around; it's slowly coming around. Good signs."

TEN MINUTES BY TRACTOR

"Ten Minutes by Tractor is so named because its three McCutcheon, Wallis and Judd Vineyards are all 10 minutes drive from each other by tractor. It’s a very clever name and in some ways reflects the buoyant charm of Martin Spedding. At vintage, each block is triaged and batch vinified to increase blending options. Winemaking philosophy is laissez faire. Fermentation is kicked off by indigenous yeasts. The Chardonnay is barrel fermented and aged for around one year in oak prior to bottling. The Pinot Noir is matured in French oak for a period of around 12-18 months. Richard McIntyre from Moorooduc Estate assists in making the wine. The Individual Vineyard wines are the most interesting but the Reserve wines are well worth trying." Andrew Caillard MW,
