Ten Minutes by Tractor 10X Chardonnay 2015
A very handy entry level wine from this polished winery.
Yellow stone fruit led by nectarines with a handy white peach cameo. Roasted nuts and vanilla cream add to the texture though it has a coarse feel in the mouth. A citrusy twist calmly rolls in whilst the generousity of the fruit cannot be denied. For mine, the acid doesn't sit completely in sync with the fruit. Good hang time, though warming, preceeded by a gentle lick of ginger type spice and a citrusy tang.
I'd have a glass with a meal. Something chicken. Maybe something creamy.
Drink now to three years.
91/100 - Very good.
