Fairhall Downs Single Vineyard Marlborough Chardonnay 2016
A delightfully rich, complex and nuanced Chardonnay from Marlborough
A rich palate with elegant fruit with hints of stone fruit, mild citrus. The wine has a smooth texture and well integrated oak. Punchy, powered and flinty edged with flavours of melon and grapefruit interlaced with overt, yet stylish oak influences that will evolve and reward patience.
In 2014 Brendon and Charlotte Bray along with Charlotte’s parents Colin and Paula Hill purchased Fairhall Downs Estate in Marlborough’s Brancott Valley. Since the original planting in 1982, this stunning 25ha site has a proud record of producing single vineyard wine of exceptional and world renowned quality.
Fairhall Downs is one of just a handful of Marlborough producers making 100% estategrown, single-vineyard wines. Their obsessive vine management and yield limiting practices ensure optimum flavour concentration and the maximum fruit expression possible from their little piece of the world.
