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% estate grown, single-vineyard wines. Our obsessive vine management and yield limiting practices ensure optimum flavour concentration and the maximum fruit expression possible from our little piece of the world.
Origin 100% Family owned single estate Brancott Valley, Marlborough, New Zealand.
Terroir The Brancott Valley has its own little microclimate, with very low rainfall, cooler nights and warmer days than is typical of Marlborough. Our vineyard soils are uniquely free-draining with a nutrient rich top layer and a gravel clay base, making it easy for root penetration - perfect soil for growing grapes.
Tasting Notes Vibrant fruit flavours that veer into citrus. Cool fermentation has revealed trademark fruit purity and oh so crisp and clean Sauvignon Blanc finish.
Food Match Fresh Oysters.
