About the Wine

Tod and Debbie Dexter specialise in Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Their vineyard is an exquisite spot for both varieties to flourish, showing off the best the Peninsula can give.

Their Black Label Pinot Noir is only released in particularly spectacular vintages, and always in limited quantity. The fruit comes from the oldest part of the Dexter vineyard, known for high quality year on year, and 60% of it sees whole bunch fermentation.

The end result is a wine filled with personality - soft and seductive, layers of subtle spice with a beautiful earthiness from the whole bunches. Complex and structured, it's one to ponder, for sure. Simply beautiful stuff.

About Dexter

Those with a penchant for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay 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.

Tod and his 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.

Additional Info

From the Producer

Hand-picked MV6 was tipped directly into a 2 tonne fermenter. After two weeks the fermenter was foot stomped and then tipped into the press and after pressing transferred immediately to second use French Puncheons. Primary fermentation and MLF were completed before winter. The wine was racked once in the spring, blended with regular fermentation batch (this year D5V12 and Pommard) and put back to second and fourth use puncheons for further ageing. The final blend is 60% whole bunches (MV6) and 40% traditional fermentation.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Stylish, effortless, and gentle style here. Autumnal Pinot Noir featuring spicy poached strawberry, cherry, a little floral, a subtle mint perfume. It’s feathery and light, but as it takes the air the fine-grained tannin makes its presence known, especially on the long finish. Delightful. Obviously I really liked it." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.
