Dave Fletcher is a very talented young winemaker with an extreme passion for Nebbiolo. He is sourcing fruit from carefully selected Vineyards both here and in Northern Italy with the sole intention of producing his own style of single Vineyard Nebbiolo. Dave respects the tradition of the variety but prefers to make his wines in a modern style with balance and fruit purity very high on his agenda. The Fletcher wines are an incredible study in the enigma that is the Nebbiolo grape. As Dave has spent more time in the vineyards of Piedmont his list of wines has grown too.
Endlessly pure and floral. The colour of garnet and purple with a magenta rim. It smells of summer pudding, a bright sweet almost strawberry character and then marzipan. The acid sits flush with the fruit, a seamless transition from fruit to structure. It’s featherweight but has beautiful concentration. The tannins are chalky and drying, the most “old world” part of the wine, but take nothing from it, rather they frame the wine beautifully.
