Layered, complex pinot noir: it's smoky, perfumed and loaded with plum, cherry, earthy beetroot and rhubarb aromas. It's silky smooth - really sensuous - elegant and with earthy cherry, blood orange, plum, dried herb and spice aromas that deliver a hit of intense, savoury flavour. Loads to like here, with bright acid and light, fine-grained tannins offering grip and length.
4.5 stars :: Ben Thomas :: The Weekly Review :: 22/08/2014
The star of Ten Minutes By Tractor continues to grow. This is a delightful drink. It's perfectly presented. Polished but spicy, fruity but with just enough forest/undergrowth flavour to give it some character. Up-front with sweet/sour cherry-plum fruit. Almost has a cranberried/strawberried sweetness at its core. Tannin is fine, filigreed, massaged into the fruit. Accordingly, it drinks like a charm. Pristine is the word I'm looking for. Drink 2014-2019+.
