The 10X wines from TMBT are sourced from vineyards all over Mornington Peninsula. They are a true regional expression of their varietals, crafted by the the the ten minutes team.

It is easy to assume that 10X is an entry level wine, but TMBT don’t do entry.. This Chardonnay is fermented using wild yeasts, in a mixture of new and used French oak. The wine is partially allowed to go through malolactic fermentation allowing a creamy texture without losing freshness. Floral notes on the nose, along with lime and citrus. This wine has lovely sweet fruit on the front palate, leaning more towards a stone fruit character- namely white peach. Great concentration and a fine textured finish. Try pairing with grilled prawns or salmon fishcakes.

    Description

    “I am going to go out on a limb with this wine: this is the best Mornington Peninsula pinot noir I have tasted to date.” – Sean Mitchell (Australian Wine Writer)

    Ten Minutes by Tractor is the convergence of wine journeys that began almost 40 years ago, a group of individuals and vineyards that fortuitously came together over time to create the winery that exists today. The winery started in 1997 with three family owned vineyards in Main Ridge, all ten minutes by tractor apart. Since then TMBT have added new vineyards, but all have their own unique character with different aspects, slopes, soils, altitude and winds which flow through the valleys up from Bass Strait.

      Grapefruit acidity, with oak, this is a bright expressive Chardonnay
