Tod Dexter grew up with wine. It was then no surprise that in 1974 after a skiing trip in the US, Tod ended up in the Napa Valley where he spent a seven-year apprenticeship with one of California's premium family wineries, Cakebread Cellars. Tod moved home to Australia in January 1987, and after an extensive search he and his wife Debbie bought a vineyard site at Merricks North on the Mornington Peninsula.
Aromas of dark berry fruits such as blackberry, plums and cherries with background aromas of dried herbs and spices. On the palate the wine is similar to the 2013 and 2015, perhaps more powerful. 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. It should age very well.
Clear crimson-purple; wastes no time in laying siege with its fruit bouquet and (in particular) palate. It’s hard to decide whether it’s the dark berry (black cherry and blackberry) or the savoury texture and length that are the best points of a truly outstanding pinot. 13.5% alc, screwcap drink to 2032, $60; Rating: 97 Points; James Halliday, The Australian, March 16 2019.
Bright red/ purple colour and a superbly fresh, fragrant, cherry aromas, with background spices and dried herb traces. Very intense, vibrant and precise. An outstanding young pinot destined for a long & distinguished life; Rating: 96 Points; Huon Hooke
