Nyetimber Classic Cuvee: “Beloved since the early ’90s when it first smashed experts’ preconceptions that England couldn’t ripen Champagne grapes, Nyetimber’s flagship wine still has it all. Flinty and ethereal on the nose, somewhere between a bitter lemon and a tonic in the mouth with pinprick bubbles releasing a sourdough breadiness, this lingers on for minutes with a savoury hit of salinity.” Sarah Heller MW
“Seeking some English sparkling wine to complement a quintessentially British big day? The name on the grapevine is Nyetimber, an estate with vineyards across Hampshire, Sussex and Kent. From the Classic Cuvee for the pre-dinner reception to Cuvee Chérie Demi-Sec to accompany the cake, there’s a sparkler for each stage of the celebration”
Nyetimber 1086 Vintage 2010 – 16.5++/20
“Texture is very important to winemakers Cherie and Brad and they certainly have achieved their ‘seamless’ aim. Nose rather white Burgundian with savour and introspection… Cherie gets grapefruit, nougat and vanilla on the end. Pretty cool and crisp…”
Nyetimber 1086 Rosé 2010 – 17/20
“Quite dark rose pink. Broad and rose-petal lusciousness. Much softer acidity than the white 2010. Round start and then chewy end. Very emphatic – a food wine. Some phenolics certainly evident.”
“Known as one of the finest sparkling wines the world has to offer, Nyetimber is grown and pressed here in our very own British back garden (West Sussex to be precise)… Pale and golden in colour, Nyetimber has a light citrus aroma with floral hints. It also has a delicious flavour reminiscent of toast and vanilla – what’s not to love?
“Nyetimber 1086 Rosé 2010 ‘Made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes – all estate-grown in West Sussex – the 2010 Rosé is packed with floral and red fruit aromas. With wonderful progression and great balance between fruit and structure, this English sparkling has nothing to envy to the best of Champagne.”
CCMV: “Uncork a fabulous sparkling wine from England’s pioneering producer. Nyetimber’s husband and wife team Brad and Spriggs Greatrix were the first producers of sparkling wine in England—over 30 years ago—and continue to lead in both quality and style. This bottling shows a creamy mouthfeel with notes of brioche, baked apple and lemon cream.”
1086 VINTAGE 2010: The energetic tension that the 2010 vintage brings ensures this wine has a very long life ahead, and the balance between richness and fruit purity is an absolute triumph.
Tillington Single Vineyard 2013: “this wine has come of age and is quite majestic delivering the finest ever from Nyetimber. The delicate clusters of micro bubbles that dance in the glass as elegantly as Swan Lake, there is a taste spectrum of the finest Michelin Star desserts on the palate, crème brulee, macaroons, strawberries, tangerine and all-so-delicate shortbread.”
“The wines of Nyetimber Winery in West Sussex rank amongst the very best in sparkling wines. This pure Chardonnay develops a delicate floral note in the nose, paired with aromas of white peach, Grannie Smith apples and a smidgen of mint. It is vivacious, crisp and very dynamic on the palate. The perfect sparkling wine for those looking for a lean, yet lush wine which exudes freshness from first drop to last.”
“Nyetimber have impressed connoisseurs the world over, creating top-notch sparkling wines using Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes – all grown across Sussex, Hampshire and Kent. At this year’s International Wine Challenge, no fewer than three of its wines were awarded gold medals.”
“One of the original English sparkling wine producers and still one of the best, Nyetimber make wine from their own vineyards across Sussex, Hampshire and Kent. This is their flagship wine, a non-vintage — or multi-vintage as they prefer to call it — blend of the three classic champagne grapes (Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier) including some older ‘reserve’ wines to add weight and flavour. It’s an absolute delight.”
