Top Aussie Red

Ten Minutes by Tractor 10X Pinot Noir, Mornington Peninsula 2012 $32

This punches above its weight, partly thanks to a great season. Bright, fresh, clean pinot fruit of purity and panache. Red-cherry, meaty and sweet kirsch-like aromas. It’s young, bright and primary with a good depth of colour and a lovely core of fruit sweetness. Now to 2022. 13 per cent alcohol. 93/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: Peking duck

Stockists: Rose Bay Drive-In, Balmoral Cellars, Summer Hill Wine Shop, Northbridge Cellars
