2015 Ten Minutes by Tractor McCutcheon Vineyard Chardonnay
Wine Rating 
 
96

The Single Vineyard releases from Ten Minutes by Tractor showcase the impact that site, and some slight variances in winemaking can have on a wine. This is something that needs to be celebrated, in old world wine regions single vineyard expressions of varieties are sought out and have a consistency of character year in and year out.

The wine was whole bunch pressed, wild yeast fermented in barrel with 22% new oak. As is the case with the the Judd Single Vineyard Chardonnay it was allowed to go through malo prior to bottling without any filtering and some light fining.

This is a wine of great structure and presence, the nose has piercing nectarine fruit with fig and creamy flint notes that are a precursor to the tightly bound but expressive elegance to come on the palate. The structure of this wine is second to none, there is a baseline of powdery acidity that gives great contrast to richer stone fruits and an unmistakable input of spicy new french oak.

The wine lingers a combination of stone fruits, fig and wood smoke with a line tantalising acidity that draws you back in for another sip
