Tod Dexter grows and makes fantastic chardonnay. The power here, the length. - Gary Walsh The bright straw-green hue heralds a beautifully handled wine. - James Halliday 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 2019 Chardonnay has subtle flavours reflective of the aromas – particularly lemon, grapefruit, stone fruit and elegant oak. The wine has a soft middle palate with good length and similar acid than in 2018.

James Halliday

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.

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.
