Adelaide-born Dave Fletcher is a self confessed Nebbiolo addict. So much so that shortly after falling in love with Nebbiolo in 2006, Dave moved to Piedmonte in 2007 to explore his passion for Nebbiolo, and has since produced an outstanding range that is both characteristic of the Piedmont region and innovative in itself. Time spent making wine and absorbing local knowledge at Ceretto have only served to deepen his love of the region and it’s great wines. Now the proud owner of, and making wine in the old train station in Barbaresco, Dave’s passion has reached its pinnacle, and the wines show it! Produced in very small quantities, we are very excited to have a small allocation this year.

Fletcher C21 Langhe DOC Chardonnay 2021 is a limited production Chardonnay out of Barbaresco. Whole bunch pressed to Burgundian barriques, 30% new oak,with no batonnage or malo and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Half of the fruit is bought, the other from his own vineyard on the Bricco Capre. Classic chardonnay flavours with a distinctive structure on the palate. Bright flavours of grapefruit and lemon merge with those of fresh stone fruits and melon. The flavours are pronounced but with the depth and structure of the palate balancing this perfectly. This wine will age gracefully and develop over many years to come.

It was the second year that we decided to pick the Chardonnay in two distinct picks. The first nice and early, to give the citrus aromas and palate zing. The second to add volume and depth to the palate and also to push the complexity up a level with stone fruits, melon and pear. As always we kept the oak integrated with no more than a third new.David Fletcher
