97 Points | Top 100 Wines - James Halliday
Dexter Wines is the personal project of Tod Dexter who has several decades experience in the Mornington Peninsula, most notably as head winemaker at Stoniers and then Yabby Lake. Suffice to say, Tod brings considerable winemaking pedigree to his venture that is reflected in the exceptional quality of the Dexter wines.
The 2019 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.
"97 Points. The bright straw-green hue heralds a beautifully handled wine. The fragrant bouquet of fused fruit and oak is increased on the harmonious, perfectly balanced palate. There's ultimate detail to the wine, with white peach all the way through to the finish and aftertaste. $40. 13.5% alc. Drink by: 2030. Screwcap"- James Halliday, Halliday Top 100 Wines 2020.
"95 Points. Tod Dexter grows and makes fantastic chardonnay. The power here, the length. This really does strut its stuff. Peach, brine, cedar wood and nutty spice. Florals and flint too. It explodes from about the mid palate onwards and soars authoritatively through the finish. Super. Tasted: Mar21 13.5% alc. $40 Screwcap Drink: 2021 - 2028" - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.
Dexter Wines is the culmination of Tod and Debbie Dexter’s lifetime ambition to make ultra-premium, single vineyard wines through careful farming of their own patch of dirt on the Mornington Peninsula.
Pinot Noir and Chardonnay were chosen as the most applicable varieties to represent and reflect the unique characteristics of the Dexter site. This exceptional site, combined with over 40 years of winemaking experience, delivers world-class wines ready to drink now or after many years of careful cellaring.
