WHY DO WE LIKE THIS WINE

Aroma Aromas of citrus fruits, particularly grapefruit and lemon, nectarine and a hint of crème brulé. Flavour Subtle flavours reflective of the aromas – particularly lemon, grapefruit, white peach and elegant oak. Palate The wine has a soft middle palate with good length and a nice acid balance. WINEMAKING Hand-picked fruit was gently whole-bunch pressed into a tank and settled overnight. It was then transferred into French oak baroques and puncheons (10% new, 10% second use, 25% third use, 55% older) and inoculated with a neutral yeast. From May until late winter the barrels were stirred every two weeks until MLF was completed. For this vintage, 80% were prevented from going through MLF to retain acid. The wine was left on yeast lees until November when it was transferred to tank for a further month on lees. Vintage Condition A favorable flowering period and intermittent rainfall in November and December saw good fruit set. Healthy vines produced strong canopies which were able to ripen a particularly even crop load. 

Tod and Debbie Dexter planted their vineyard in Merricks, Mornington Peninsular in 1987. After a jaunt to Burgundy in 2000, Tod decided he wanted something more. After helping establish the formidable reputation of Stonier wines with Brian Stonier, and a time with Mornington icon Yabby Lake, at the age of 50, his own project, Dexter wines, came to be. The wines have received consistent critical acclaim and remain to this day one of the Peninsula’s most loved labels by those who seek the best Pinot and Chardonnay in the region.
