A new era for English wine began in 1988 when the first Nyetimber vineyards were planted in the heart of West Sussex. The aim – to make premium sparkling wine that would rival Champagne. That aim has been fully realised, and over the years the wines have attracted international acclaim and set a high benchmark for premium sparkling wines the world over.
Just over fourteen hectares (thirty-five acres) of gentle, south-facing slopes of greensand soil were planted with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, the classic varieties of the Champagne region.
Mellow gold in colour with hints of green, this wine has a fine bead and delicate mousse. The nose displays powerful aromas of lemon, spice and vanilla with subtle notes of caramel and minerality. A clean fresh citrus entry on the palate is quickly followed by classic Chardonnay characters of baked lemon and minerals. The bubbles are soft and give a lovely delicacy to the wine. The long finish is full of citrus and toast.
