Harriet Arkell – The Daily Mail

Waterloo

 

Harriet Arkell makes a bold but we think justified claim, in a year containing the 200th anniversary of the battle of Waterloo. She goes on to outline Nyetimber’s more recent history:

Named after the beautiful
medieval house at the heart of the
estate, this Sussex vineyard was set
up by Americans Stuart and Sandy
Moss, who fell in love with the house
and decided to make wine there. Now
owned by Dutchman Eric Hereema,
Nyetimber’s sparkling wine is said to
be a favourite of the Queen, who served
it at her Golden and Diamond Jubilee
celebrations.

 

And give a few words of praise to the Nyetimber Rosé 2009:

 

This attractive deep pink fizz tastes summery and has a long finish. It’s just the ticket to cheer up those dark winter days.
