Nyetimber are located in West Sussex, and since their original plantings of classic varieties in 1988, have established themselves as England’s premier sparkling wine house, making world class wines to rival (and often beat in blind tastings) the big names of Champagne.
This cracking sparkling wine took the wine world by storm in 2003 when it beat the likes of Bollinger and Louis Roederer in a blind tasting competition to be named champion of Worldwide Sparkling wines in an italian competition in Verona.
This Nyetimber is described as fruit-driven with Chardonnay at the fore and ‘aromas of mandarins, vanilla, lemons, shortbread and light apricot’. A beguilingly Champagne-like nose of citrus fruit, brioche and shortbread. The mousse is finely pearled, soft, yet mouth-filling and persistent. Elegantly shaped and supremely poised.
Alcohol by Volume: 12%
Grape: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier
