Langton’s Selections Ten Minutes by Tractor Reserve Chardonnay, Ten Minutes by Tractor Reserve Pinot noir Ten Minutes by Tractor is so named because its three McCutcheon, Wallis and Judd Vineyards are all 10 minutes drive from each other by tractor. It’s a very clever name and in some ways reflects the buoyant charm of Martin Spedding. The vineyards are all vertically shoot-positioned. Leaf plucking, hedging and bunch thinning takes place during the growing season to maintain even ripening. At vintage, each block is triaged and batch vinified to increase blending options. Winemaking philosophy is laissez faire. Fermentation is kicked off by indigenous yeasts. Both the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are made with traditional techniques. The Chardonnay is barrel fermented and aged for around one year in oak prior to bottling. The Pinot Noir is matured in French oak for a period of around 12-18 months.
