Ten Minutes by Tractor 10X Sauvignon Blanc 2014

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.
