Ten Minutes by Tractor Sauvignon Blanc (Mornington Peninsula, WA)
Those accustomed to rather steely acid with this variety may be pleasantly surprised by how round and voluptuous this feels in the mouth. Indeed, a certain caress of texture is a highlight of this bottling, providing a soft landing for a range of flavours that span the same breadth as the aroma: everything from ripe herbs through minerality to a soft lick of caramel. Intensity is good up front, but what’s especially gratifying here is how persistent the line is and how much the flavour evolves as the wine moves over the tongue.
Minimum 6 bottle purchase.
