75cl bottle.

A rare single vineyard wine with a tiny amount made – just 2820 bottles! From a vineyard planted in 2000. Aged in oak for 11 months :: 30% new 228 litre French oak barrels (medium toast; very tight grain; François Frères)

With such tiny yields it’s a pleasure just to see this wine at all, with the perfect season great for quality but miserable for yields. Coolart is the earliest picked of the Ten Minutes by Tractor vineyards and you’d expect this to be a beastly wine. But it’s not – rather, it’s joyously plump and ripe, a wine of red raspberry easygoing flavour, yet with tannins and grip. Great balance between the need for appealing fruit flavour and structure.
