Dexter Wines is the personal project of Tod Dexter who has several decades winemaking experience in the Mornington Peninsula, most notably as head winemaker at Stoniers and then Yabby Lake. Suffice to say, Tod brings some real winemaking pedigree to this venture that is reflected in the exceptional quality of his wines.
The 2018 Dexter Chardonnay is another refined, vibrant Mornington Peninsula Chardonnay that offers up plenty of complex, nutty, white peach flavours with restrained oak playing merely a support role. An outstanding cool-climate Chardonnay that will only bolster the reputation of this producer.
"95 Points. It’s laid down a mighty track record over the years at TWF. Ample flavour delivered on a fine and lean frame. Ripe lime and white nectarine, cashew and light ginger spice. Tight and intense. Line and length. Super Chardonnay satisfaction. It’s just right. Tasted: Feb20 13.5% alc. $40 Screwcap Drink: 2020 - 2027"- Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.
Dexter Wines is the project of Tod Dexter who has several decades winemaking experience in the Mornington Peninsula, most notably as head winemaker at Stoniers and then Yabby Lake. Suffice to say, Tod brings some real winemaking pedigree to his personal venture that is reflected in the consistently exceptional quality Mornington Peninsula Chardonnay and Pinot Noir under the Dexter label.
The Dexter Vineyard is in a small east/west valley. The evening sea breezes from Port Phillip Bay, Westernport Bay and Bass Strait helps moderate the local climate. The vineyard was set out to maximise its qualities and specific site. Growing premium fruit has always been the ultimate aim. Row spacing (2.5 metres) and vine spacing (1.5 metres) optimize the interception of sunlight by the vines and allows a good ratio of fruit weight to leaf surface area. This promotes even ripening and good balanced fruit. The first planting was one clone each of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Subsequent plantings have resulted in 3.54 hectares of each variety and a multitude of clones.
