The 10X range is made from fruit grown on Mornington Peninsula. This is lightly oaked with luscious fruit and a mineral finish. It's a great choice for summer because it retains its flavours when served icy cold.

There's plenty of fruit on offer here, and winemaking has added subtly complex flinty and mealy character to the bright pears, melon and peach fruits on the nose. The palate's bright and crunchy, and good acid kicks things along nicely. Flavours are bright: peach and nectarine, savoury thread here too.

Ten Minutes by Tractor is an upper echelon producer these days. Remarkable achievement. Terrific drinking here. Perfectly weighted, flavoured, textured. Lots of citrus, melon, creamy oak and milky, saline notes. Racy but it feels good on your tongue. And the aftertaste – spicy, briney, stonefruity – brings a smile to your face. Great for drinking this summer – though it will hold and develop well over the next few years. Drink: 2012-2015.

RATHER SMART - THE noise surrounding the modern Australian chardonnay revolution thankfully continues, and this regional three-vineyard blend gets whole-bunch pressing, wild yeast fermentation, 23 per cent new, small oak barrels all the hallmarks of the highest shelf wines. And it is rather smart because of it subtle with white stone fruits shining on the palate with a dash of gingery spice. Very tasty and a pleasure to drink.

TMBT is one of my favourite estates in the country and this 10X label is now a must have mini-brand with serious appeal and a knockout flavour to boot. The wizards have decided to reward this wine with a barrel or two made from the finest French oak and this is evident not only on the nose, but also, texturally, on the palate. The result is a truly flamboyant experience for an eminently affordable price tag.
