Nyetimber Demi Sec Cuvée Chérie
“Balance, charm & ease"
- West Sussex, United Kingdom
“Lively creamy mousse with fresh floral and citrus aromas. The hint of sweetness on the palate really balances the firm acidity giving a rounded softer body and enhances the primary fruits, such an attractive and much underrated style.”

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, the receiver of the IWSC English wine producer of the year award 2016) 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 (Sep-2016)
