Details

"Now a blend of four vineyards, the Estate Chardonnay takes a different tack this year, the vintage warmth delivering a wine that has more width and volume. There’s an extra edge of white chocolate on the nose this year too, though backed with a more traditional white peach and nectarine that is the Ten Minutes by Tractor trademark. Underneath, it’s a broadly proportioned wine with a notable depth of flavour this year – a more full-throttle Estate Chardonnay – though with plenty of acidity to carry off the style. Best drinking 2018-2026"


Andrew Graham


"Open the bottle and the clouds part and the sun comes out. It's more complex than that but the fruit flavours here are like winter sun on cold stone. Nectarine and white peach come with steely inflections; with spice notes, like cardamom and fennel. It's a beguiling show. Time should be kind too."
