2015 Dexter Pinot Noir

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

From the talented hand of Tod Dexter - whom was instrumental in making Stonier such a highly regarded Mornington Peninsula name - this is a very classically styled (and classically awesome) Mornington Pinot in a plain stylish package. It's the sort of Pinot that Cracka staff drink when they're not furiously typing out tasting notes.

Winemaker's Notes

Nose: Aromas of dark berry fruits such as blackberry and plums, with background aromas of dried herbs and spices

Palate: The wine is similar to the 2013, perhaps a little more fruit driven with slightly more tannin. The complex flavours are of blackberries, plums, spices and hints of oak. It has a soft entry with mid palate fruit sweetness and lovely texture. The finish is long with balanced acid and fine tannins

Alc/vol: 13.7%

2015 Dexter Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

Mike Bennie (2015 Vintage) says
Pound for pound this must be one of the best Australian Pinot Noirs (that often flies under the radar). All you have to do is look at this set of reviews for an idea of how well regarded the wine is. The fruit comes from Tod Dexter’s family vineyard, and, of course, he makes the wine drawing on his wealth of experience. I appreciate how it often offers a divergent expression of Mornington Peninsula pinot noir too – some delicacy goes a long way. It’s a pure, waifish Pinot Noir of immense flavour and perfume, yet finesse. Sets itself up with red cherry, sweet spice, sandalwood oak influence and a sniff of briar and undergrowth. The palate is pretty, trimmed with a fine web of suede tannin, sits in fine sheets of sappy red fruit, offers a lick more of sweet spice and rolls supple with faint game meat savouriness finishing mouthwatering and soft. Big glasses, lavish swirls, lots of time and pinot fanciers will go wild. An excellent release.
