SINGLE VINEYARD WINES • ESTATE WINES • 10X WINES • MUSEUM RELEASES  

Single Vineyard Wines

We produce Single Vineyard Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from our Estate vineyards, those 100% managed by our viticultural, vineyard and winemaking teams – Judd, McCutcheon, Wallis and, from 2013, Coolart Road – when it is appropriate.

These wines are from the highest performing blocks of the Judd, McCutcheon and Wallis vineyards in Main Ridge and Coolart Road in the northern Peninsula. Harvesting from small carefully selected parcels and attention to detail in the vineyard and winery are designed to ensure the clearest expression of the terroir of these vineyards.

Single Vineyard wines are only made in vintages that produce wines of appropriate quality. Production is usually less than 200 dozen; they are truly limited edition wines.

Estate Wines

Our Estate wines are those which express regional origin with barrel selections from individual vineyards merging their specific attributes into a coalescence which harmoniously blends into a whole. These wines represent what we believe to be the best expression of a Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir or Chardonnay each vintage. The aim is not to seek the individuality of the single vineyards, rather we liken our Estate Wines to a “field blend”, albeit one created at the tasting bench in the barrel room but nonetheless a blend of clones from a wide variety of individual vineyard blocks.

10X Wines

10X wines are sourced from several vineyards on the Mornington Peninsula and are therefore a regional expression of each variety. These include the Ten Minutes by Tractor Estate vineyards – Judd, McCutcheon, Wallis, Coolart Road and Winebar. We also source grapes from Osborn Vineyard, in the north of the Peninsula in the Tuerong area.

Our 10X wines are created as easy drinking examples of what the Mornington Peninsula can produce. They may have been picked from younger vines or at slightly different times to achieve slightly different characteristics and, as a general rule, they see less new oak and spend less time in oak during maturation. 10X wines are released in the year following vintage whereas Estate and Single Vineyard wines are released two years after vintage.

The end result is more approachable, more accessible and more immediately rewarding; the wines have a delicious freshness and clarity.

Museum Releases

Each vintage we keep back small amounts of every wine we make in ideal temperature and light conditions to…

  • Monitor the evolution of our wines in the bottle to observe how they age
  • Make back vintages available for sale from time to time

“From the moment a technically sound still table wine, white or red, is corked up in its bottle two things will happen: it will progressively lose primary fruit and secondary fermentation flavours and oak aromas and tastes, and (up to a certain point) its aromas and flavours will become more ‘complex’. Complexity comes through the formation of tertiary compounds brought about by the largely unseen chemical changes which take place as the wine ages.”
The Art And Science Of Wine, James Halliday & Hugh Robinson

Our winemakers and sommeliers recently undertook a comprehensive tasting of back vintages and we have decided to release small amounts of wines from the 2006 to 2012 vintages which are all drinking well and displaying these complex tertiary characters…in many cases there are literally single digit bottles available. This is an ideal opportunity to explore the Ten Minutes By Tractor wines by vertical tastings (same wine, different vintages) and horizontal tastings (different wines, same vintage).

[A summary of the reviews of all the available wines may be found grouped by individual vintages here: 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012; for full details of specific wines please click on the individual wines.]
