Description

Here we have the stunning debut of Ten Minutes by Tractor's 'Trahere' range, a new premium offering combining the best parcels of fruit across the Judd, McCutcheon and Spedding vineyards. And what a debut!

'Trahere' is a Latin verb, meaning 'to pull' - a reference to owner Martin Spedding's love of tractors! As Spedding explains, these wines are "a culmination of all these elements: the land we work and care for, our drive to make progress and pull forward, our passion to learn and bring people together to produce the best wines possible from this Bunurong land".

This is a gorgeous Pinot Noir from a great vintage - full of bright and energetic red fruit and a level of structure and forest floor complexity that truly takes it to another level. A massive 97 points from Huon Hooke and just a stunning Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir.

97 points

"Medium depth of bright ruby colour with a tinge of purple; the bouquet very fragrant, lifted and fresh, with red cherry, strawberry and raspberry aromas and a lick of five-spice, plus a layer of autumn leaves/forest-floor/pot-pourri. A pristine wine in a delicate, highly detailed, filigreed style, ethereal and texturally refined, and quite beautiful."

- Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

Vintage

A wet spring with moderate temperatures resulted in good healthy canopies with lower than average yields across all our vineyards. Higher than average rainfall and moderate temperatures over the summer, together with some dry spells, resulted in slow ripening and concentration of flavour and good acidity. This vintage has produced some wonderful wines with great concentration and fine detail.

Winemaking

The fruit was handpicked, chilled and sorted carefully on our sorting table before being fermented with indigenous yeasts on skins for 17 days. After pressing, the wine was transferred to barrel where it was aged for 13 months using 22% new French oak before undergoing a natural malolactic fermentation. The wine was then bottled unfined and unfiltered.


Tasting Notes

This first Trahere has a wonderful colour and an alluring floral perfume with rich red fruits – strawberry and cherry, together with gamey, earthy and spice undertones. On the palate, there is great concentration, fine detail, and texture. It’s complex and intense and has silky fine tannins and a graphite like edge that adds to the detail and precision. There is a seamless and lingering aspect to this wine that adds great allure and sets it apart.

97 points - "Medium depth of bright ruby colour with a tinge of purple; the bouquet very fragrant, lifted and fresh, with red cherry, strawberry and raspberry aromas and a lick of five-spice, plus a layer of autumn leaves/forest-floor/pot-pourri.

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
