Nyetimber Classic Cuvée
"Lovely pale gold and gentle, fine bubbles"
- West Sussex, United Kingdom
"Zesty and obviously deeper flavoured than the vintage-dated Classic Cuvées. Really long and complex." 17.5/20 Jancis Robinson (May 2016) "Beautifully focussed lively wine, combining the cool climate zing of England with a mellow breadcrust aftertaste." International Wine Challenge (IWC) 2018: Silver "It has a fabulous fine mousse and flavours that combine a zesty citrus with brioche and lingering finish. Plenty of top hotels feature this as either their only English wine – or at the very least, a favourite - and it’s also a favourite at weddings where it is often chosen in preference to champagne." Kate Hilpern for IndyBest "15 best English sparkling wines" Southern England is perfect for the production of sparkling wine. The chalk seam that supplies Champagne grapes with the perfect green sand and chalky soil to flourish is the very same that runs under the lee of the South Downs. Owner Eric Heerema and winemaker Cherie Spriggs of multi-award winning Nyetimber, (most recently in 2016, the receiver of the IWSC ‘English wine producer of the year’ award) produce sparkling wines of exceptional quality.
"Nyetimber, near Horsham in West Sussex, has always been a trailblazer. Established in 1988 by an American couple, the Mosses, it was the first English wine estate to concentrate on the champagne grapes Pinot and Chardonnay and to import winemaking expertise from Champagne. Soon after they released their first wine in the mid-1990s, it “beat” many a champagne in a blind tasting in the FT offices."
Jancis Robinson, ft.com (September 2016)
"Very classic nose. Ripe apricots, marzipan, baked lemon. Savoury and refined on the palate with an elegant mousse and integrated acidity. Layered and long." 95/100, Gold medal winner in the International Wine Challenge.
