About

Those with a penchant for Pinot Noir and Mornington Peninsula will most likely have had a wine by Tod Dexter. It may have been under the Stonier label, it may have been under Yabby Lake; regardless, it would have been memorable. Dexter is his own. He and wife Debbie planted this east-west vineyard in Merricks back in 1987 and have been making their own wines from it for over a decade. The current release of Pinot Noir is lovely. Tod compares it to the excellent 2012 and 2013 vintages, though perhaps with a little more elegance. Treat yourself to a bottle of this and discover the beauty of the Peninsula, this is magic stuff.

What it Tastes Like

"Ever stylish, perfumed Pinot Noir from the Tracy Island vineyard on the Mornington Peninsula. Raspberry and squishy strawberries, subtle spice and earthiness, a perfume of rose and basil. Medium bodied, silky and fine, kind of succulent, but with a gentle drag of fine grained tannin giving structure and pushing out the length. Red drapes on a fine firm frame. Finish has a subtle herbal infusion, in with the pretty red fruits. Just lovely, as ever." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
