Expert Reviews & Awards
'A much paler hue than Down the Hill, which isn’t surprising and it is lighter and more fragrant in a way. The fruit is destemmed yet it has an appealing bunchy character, tangy and juicy, too. An intriguing waft of mocha cream and hazelnut pops up, plus all sorts of cherry accents. It’s juicy and led by acidity with tannins in tow.' 93 Points (On the 2021 vintage)

Ten Minutes by Tractor
Ten Minutes by Tractor is a winery on the Mornington Peninsula. It is the convergence of wine journeys that began almost 40 years ago with a group of individuals and vineyards that fortuitously came together over time, to create the winery that exists today.The winery started in 1997 with three family owned vineyards in Main Ridge, all ten minutes by tractor apart. Since then they have added new vineyards, and each vineyard has its own unique character with different aspects, slopes, soils, altitude and winds that flow through the valleys up from Bass Strait.
About Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir is one of the world's most loved, light bodied red wines. Pinot Noir can be made into a variety wine styles, from light and fruity styles featuring cherry and strawberry notes to more complex, gamey and earthy styles. Pinot Noir is usually higher in acid and lower in tannin, making it an ideal pairing for lighter, fattier foods duck, cheese and lamb. Often, the region defines the style. Along with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir is the main grape variety in Burgundy, where the cooler climate produces highly prized wines, loved throughout history of drinking wine! Germany is also known for high quality Pinot Noir, produced in the cooler regions of Pfalz and Baden. As well as France and Germany, the 'new world' wine countries such as the USA, Chile, South Africa and New Zealand also produce high quality Pinot Noir. The list of top Pinot Noir regions in the world includes; Sonoma County, Carneros, Santa Barbara County and Oregon (USA), Casablanca (Chile), Walker Bay (South Africa), Marlborough and Central Otago (New Zealand). Australia also has pockets of high quality Pinot Noir in multiple regions but some of the best Pinot Noir wines are made in the Yarra Valley, Tasmania, The Mornington Peninsula and the Adelaide Hills.
About Mornington Peninsula
The Mornington Peninsula is an inspiring wine region, known for high quality Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio also grow well in the region's ideal, maritime climate. Located 70 kilometres south of Melbourne, the Mornington Peninsula is surrounded by three bodies of water (including Port Philip Bay and the Bass Strait), providing ideal cooling breezes (it can be windy at times) and cooler nights that helps the grapes to retain their acidity. The white wines are fragrant and display pure fruit characteristics such as apple, pear and citrus. The Pinot Noir can be either light or more structured, depending on the location of the vineyard and winemaking techniques.
