Ten Minutes by Tractor have succeeded here with sauvignon blanc from the the Mornington Peninsula. The grapes were whole bunch pressed, fermented with wild yeasts and saw ~9 months in old French oak. More Pouilly-Fumé than Marlborough in style, the 2014 10X sauvignon blanc has stoney, saline aromatics. The palate is fresh with notes of lemon and hints of cashew. I like the suggestion of a fresh goat’s cheese salad to accompany.
Rating: Good to Very Good
