Wine Advocate 92 points - The 2012 Sexton Vineyard Chardonnay has notes of ripe apricots, honeydew melon and guava with hints of cashews, meal and allspice. Light to medium-bodied, there is a pleasant suggestion of silkiness to the texture along with racy acid and some mineral layers in the long finish. Approachable now, it is best to drink 2014-2019+.”,,,  (Aug 2013)

Wine Spectator 92 points - Crisp, vibrant and expressive, layered with nectarine, grapefruit and white pepper flavors, finishing with intensity, length and deft balance. Drink now through 2020.H.S. (Feb 26 2014)

Located on the steep north facing slopes of the Warramate Ranges, alongside the vineyards of Yarra Yering and Coldstream Hills, the Sexton vineyard is exposed and demanding. Being well up the slopes, topsoil is thin and root systems have established themselves in shallow gravelly loams above a tough rocky clay base. Vigoir and bunch yields set naturally low in this environment, facilitating a low intervention approach to what is otherwise hand tended viticulture. Biodynamic vineyard management principles are being introduced with the purpose of further distinguishing the site and improving grape and wine quality.
