TEN MINUTES BY TRACTOR
Star Cellar Door
With its vaulted wooden ceiling, dark panelling and brass details, the latest edition of the Ten Minutes by Tractor cellar door exudes the eye for quality and attention to detail that one of Red Hill’s shining lights has become particularly renowned for. Varietal-specific glassware is placed next to illustrated maps of the original family-named vineyard sites, with the full range of 10X, single vineyard and regional expressions available to taste for a small fee. While fans of Martin Spedding’s renowned estate battle it out over which of the original sites – Wallis, Judd or McCutcheon – produces their favourite pinot noir or chardonnay, the vintage blanc de blancs, pinot gris and a new riesling grown down the road at Paradigm Hill offer further interest for newcomers to the brand. Don’t want to leave? Pop in next door to the estate’s award-winning restaurant for further vinous intrigue and one of the country’s best wine lists.
