About The Wine
Barbaresco is one of the best places on the planet to grow Nebbiolo. We know this.
Lesser known is the region's potential for producing very high-class Chardonnay.
Dave Fletcher's is a very fine example. It's rich and round but it tightens through the finish. The powerful fruit tempered by 30% new Burgundian oak, making for a full-figured, finely-tuned white wine.
In the context of the region, Dave's version offers exemplary value for money.
This is more than just a curio - it's an excellent Chardonnay from a small artisan producer.
Dave Fletcher fell in love with Nebbiolo early in his winemaking career.
After some time spent in the Nebbiolo Mecca, Piedmonte, Dave moved his whole family and life there to pursue his passion for the variety. He took up a position as winemaker at famous producer Cerrato and still makes the wines there to this day.
His own label has been a slow labour of love to get off the ground but now it's in full swing. Through sourcing select plots of fruit from local growers in Barbaresco and planting his own vines, his small eponymous label is now taking flight.
Precious little of the Fletcher wines make it to Australia and they sell out in a flash. If you're a true enthusiast of Nebbiolo, you need to get to know Dave's wines, they offer brilliant value for money.
