Ten Minutes by Tractor

Title

The nose shows all the hallmarks of Ten Minutes by Tractor’s Chardonnay style: transparency, savouriness, delicacy. Aromas are of light caramel, white peach, sea spray and herbs, all tightly integrated. It’s a nuanced aroma, with good complexity and a light touch, very proper and even slightly prim. There’s a loucheness under the surface though, with tendrils of wild savouriness reaching out from the perimeter, keeping things earthy and real. The palate is again all about balance. Adding to the same range of flavours as signalled on the nose, the palate contributes an especially well judged mouthfeel. It’s slippery without being heavy, full enough to add weight to the caramel and peach flavours yet fleet enough to keep them moving along. That wildness glimpsed on the nose stays under control, adding just enough edge to raise an eyebrow. There’s no doubt the single vineyard wines represent the purest expression of intent within the portfolio, but it’s gratifying to know you can get such a substantial taste of the premium labels with this wine. A wine for those who want characterful Chardonnay for their everyday drinking.
