    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.

    Old vine Favorita from Dave Fletcher's new project Cantina della Stazione. This distinctive white wine is full of elegance and finesse, perfect to accompany light dishes or an aperitif. The grapes are from 60-year-old vines in the Bricco Capre vineyard in San Rocco, Alba. The harvest took place in 2 rounds. The first grapes were harvested specifically to preserve freshness and acidity. In the second run, the focus was on the fruit intensity. This approach has created a wine that is on one hand very fresh, and on the other hand perfectly ripe. Fermented with natural local yeasts, whole bunch pressed to seasoned Burgundy barriques for 8 months on fine lees, bottle unfined and unfiltered.

    On the nose you will find aromatic white flowers and subtle citrus notes surrounded by a hint of flint. Notes of creamy lees, white peach and nectarine shine on the palate, an absolutely fascinating wine, a delight to taste and utterly absorbing to drink. Salty, and electric, with a silky glide. The fruit is incredibly intense, bright and tangy. Ripe, but mouth-watering.
