Nyetimber has revealed that harvest 2023 will be its biggest ever, with 350ha of vines to be harvested, up almost 8% on last year. Senior Winemaker, Brad Greatrix, said “There are always a few hurdles to jump over before we can understand the final volume and, most importantly, the quality of the grapes.”
Nyetimber Tillington Single Vineyard 2014 Sussex, England
This is beautifully concentrated and precise with aromas of toast, honey, cherry, pear and lime melding together with a sense of harmony. The palate has some innate richness, with peach, pear and bright citrus as well as more of the honey, toast and spice notes, as well as a touch of nougat, and then a long, linear finish. This is so impressive. 94/100 (JG)
The Blanc de Blancs 2014 has been named as best buy in the piece with them saying, ‘In many ways, both the original and the best. Although sparkling wine grapes were planted at this ancient estate in Sussex in 1988, it is under the ownership of Eric Heerema since 2006, together with Canadian born head winemaker Cherie Spriggs – Sparkling Winemaker of the Year in 2018, the first time anyone outside Champagne had won the award – that Nyetimber has blossomed into becoming a byword for excellence and elegance. This pure chardonnay wine is one of their best and still available at a very reasonable price: flavours of citrus and brioche and hints of camomile and elderflower. Simply gorgeous.’
Esquire Japan featured Nyetimber as their brand project for Men’s Club this month.
“A pioneer of English sparkling wine, Nyetimber produces sparkling wine from its own vineyards. In 2018, Nyetimber’s winemakers became the first sparkling winemaker outside the Champagne region to win the prestigious Sparkling Winemaker of the Year award. This wine is the perfect accompaniment to a special dinner at home. There are six varieties available in Japan. The three bottles on the left are multi-vintage, and the three bottles on the right are single vintage. The two bottles on the right are the signature prestige cuvees. The company’s vineyard is located in southern England, in the terroir that continues from the Champagne region and is said to be suitable for growing grapes for high-quality sparkling wine. Also notable is the company’s pursuit of traceability, which is rare in the industry. Each bottle is labelled by variety, blend ratio, and bottling date. The printed numbers provide access to individual information.”
Anne Krebiehl has published her review of Nyetimber’s Tillington 2014 on Falstaff, following a tasting with Brad. She gives the wine 94 points, saying, ‘After an initial whiff of reduction dissipates, there are notes of freshly cut green and red apple and a touch of sea breeze. More air reveals freshly cut red apple flesh. The palate comes in with a kind of rounded energy, with fruity élan that is reminiscent of ripe, red apple. The mousse is fine and creamy, the body is generous yet svelte, and there is a most lovely edge of pith that almost destines this for the table. It is the subtle apple-scented creaminess on the salty, dry finish that is utterly disarming. Impeccable balance.’

Nyetimber is included in the March edition of Vanity Fair on their product pages ‘The Hot List’. They have featured a bottle of Blanc de Blancs 2014, saying it is a ‘Failsafe choice for English Sparkling Wine.’
Want to pop a cork after you’ve pop the question? Or just after some fizz for a romantic evening? We’ve rounded up the best pink to drink this February 14th.
Nyetimber 1086 Rosé Prestige Cuvee
Which grape varieties? Nyetimber’s premier pink wine does things properly; sticking to the established blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
Flavours and aromas? One sip of this sparkling wine, and you’ll be propelled from the depths of February into the warm climes of summer. Think cherry, redcurrant and all manner of British summer fruits (with a touch of shortbread) to give you an elegantly English fluteful.
What does it pair with? Nyetimber’s 1086 Rosé Prestige Cuvee would pair delightfully with British game and poultry, we’d suggest jumping back across the Channel for a langoustine accompaniment.

“The concept behind this series of articles by Satoko Fujisaki is to help you visualize the appeal of wine through the senses, like the feeling of remembering a friend, family, or loved one. With support from illustrator Inigo Studio, the wine is visualized in a human form- helping us to be reminded that wine is a living thing.”
The article is set as an interview format between the interviewer and “1086 Prestige Cuvée 2009” as a human. He details his birthplace, West Sussex, as a sunny place cooled by the sea breeze. The meaning behind 1086 is explained as the year that the name Nyetimber was inscribed in the UK land register as an official estate. He also describes his style (aka the design of the bottle), as a representation of the blue sky in Sussex. The fertile soil of his hometown is shown in the colour of his trousers. The humanized “1086 Nyetimber Prestige Cuvée 2009” describes his favorite time to drink is at ‘parties or with my family and friends, as well as camping solo’, as he claims it allows you to concentrate on the delicate flavours of the mellow fruit.
