Dexter Chardonnay 2015

Dexter Chardonnay 2017

Mornington Peninsula, Victoria   |    750ml   |    12.5%
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 2017 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. Flavour delivered with finesse, is the import. A light smokiness, spice, lime rind and nectarine, but hey, it’s Chardonnay all right, and that’s the main thing. Slightly nervy too, subtle green reflections in the just-ripe fruit, almost a Riesling like cut of lime and crushed rock, tang and energy through the finish. Sophisticated. A little bit of something extra here. Tasted: Dec18 Alcohol: 13.5% Price: $40 Closure: Screwcap Drink: 2019 - 2024" - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.

Hand picked fruit is gently whole bunch pressed into a tank and settled overnight. It is then transferred into French oak barriques (20% New, 80% second, third and fourth use) and inoculated with a neutral yeast. Fermentation is relatively vigorous and complete within two weeks. From May until spring the barrels are stirred every two weeks until MLF is complete. The wine is left on lees until bottling with filtration in February, 10 months after harvest.- Dexter Wines
