Nyetimber Vineyard pioneered the UK’s recent rise to fame and recognition for its ability to be taken seriously at international level. The estate was conceived, planted and equipped exclusively for the production of top-quality sparkling wines. Nyetimber owes it’s reputation (and awards) to the high quality of the fruit which emanates from this ideal site and to the fastidious and non-interventionist activity in the winery. From the heart of West Sussex, Nyetimber continues to build upon it’s reputation as the premium English sparkling wine to rival Champagne. Now the largest vineyard in the UK, the Nyetimber Estate comprises 438 acres under vine and it is the fusion of expertise in the vineyard together with highly skilled wine making that sets the wines apart. Also unique in the UK, Nyetimber is the only producer to make premium sparkling wine exclusively from estate grown fruit, thus ensuring complete control at every stage of the process.

The bouquet begins with the toasted topping of crème brulee and meringue before the wine continues with time in the glass to open and build in intensity. Flavours of strawberry and cherry emerge. A great example of both power and freshness on the palate. Flavours of mandarin and pastry proceed to a finish which is long and balanced and which introduces a flavour of vanilla.
