Ten Minutes By Tractor Estate 'Up the Hill' Pinot Noir 2022
In good vintages, TMBT produce two ‘estate’ wines from the higher and lower part of their vineyard site. Upon tasting the two side by side from this vintage, we had a clear favourite in this wine. While the ‘Down the Hill’ Pinot was ripe, juicy and generous, it didn’t have the elegance and purity that this wine has. ‘Up the Hill’ shows red florals, red petal, dried twig and stick, and a suggestion of turned earth. Flavours have great definition and the balance of sweet fruit and savoury components are in perfect harmony. – Ches Cook, FWC.
