For 25 years Nyetimber has had a single aim: to make the finest English sparkling wine, one to rival the very best in the world...
A true pioneer, Nyetimber was the very first producer of English sparkling wine to craft wines made exclusively from Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. In 1988, Nyetimber planted its first vines and today, the House is regarded as one of England's finest wine producers. Owner and Chief Executive Eric Heerema and winemaker Cherie Spriggs are committed to producing wines of a Grande Marque standard. Each bottle of Nyetimber is crafted from one hundred percent estate-grown grapes.
Nyetimber uses only its own grapes from its own vineyards, each of which was deliberately selected to be south-facing with either sandy or chalk soils. All Nyetimber vineyards are located in the middle of the South Downs which affords them shelter from the coastal winds. Prior to harvest, the grapes are tasted to ensure the best flavour development before picking. Every single grape is picked by hand at the optimal time, a decision that is made on a parcel by parcel basis.
Each vineyard parcel is fermented separately in stainless steel tanks. Such attention to detail allows for a wonderful diversity of base wines when blending decisions are made in the spring following the harvest. All wines are crafted according to the strict rules of the traditional method, aged for at least three years on the lees and given sufficient post-disgorgement time before release.
A beautiful sunset pink colour. Aromas include a charming mix of fresh red fruits along with intriguing spice notes of anise and lavender. The palate has a creamy, round texture with refreshing redcurrant, raspberry and cherry flavours. Hints of brioche lead into an elegant, silky finish.
