Expert Reviews

Nick Stock (2011 Vintage) says
This is a fine and elegant offering in the single-vineyard trio of pinots from Ten Minutes By Tractor. It has bright and fragrant red fruits, really floral, some fresh rosehip and cranberry too. The palate has lovely, fleshy fruit at its core, with fresh, elegant acidity sitting right on point. Concentrated yet fine, precise, lingering finish.

A light and bright upper Yarra Valley pinot noir from Andrew Marks, this shows attractive, ripe strawberry-fruit aromas, some hints of wild herbs, musk and gently savoury oak-derived complexity. The palate carries a dense core of middle-palate flavour - quite concentrated and assertive. It's a wine that would be best cellared, and drunk from 2016 onwards.

Andrew Marks' family is the proprietor of Gembrook Hill and Andrew has started in on his own Yarra project, with promising early results. This is a brambly red forest fruit style of pinot, showing spicy complexity on the nose. The palate has an assertive yet elegant shape, really charming spiced red fruit flavour, gentle stalky chew and a springy tannin finish.

There are two Wanderer Pinot Noirs from the 2008 vintage and the only real way to distinguish them, by name at least, is to say that this is not the 'upper Yarra' version. It's picture-perfect pinot noir. Andrew Marks - the wine's maker - really knows what he's doing. It has lots of dark, tea-leafy, velvety tannin and notes of fennel and bitumen, though there's no sign of any alcohol heat. Milk powder characters too, and of course, lots of dark, serious, cherried flavour. This is a wine of both personality and polish.

Andrew Marks' eye for making good pinot is in full effect here: cooler wild berry fruit characters, bright and really primary, with plenty of sweet musky spice dusted across the top. The palate, laid out across fine supple tannins, has attractive direct character; structure rules the roost, fanning fruit out along the line. Great balance and resolve.
