Nyetimber Blanc de Blancs

England, West Sussex

Lovely pale gold in colour with a fine bead – this Blanc de Blancs is the essence of pure Chardonnay. The aromas and flavours are in perfect harmony, beginning with a delicate floral and citrus entry followed by subtle vanilla and toast arriving at the end. A long and complex finish makes this a wine to be savoured.”

Producer

Nyetimber is now broadly regarded as England’s finest sparkling wine. In the last five years or so, these wines have emerged from an already high base to a new level of refinement and quality. Owned by Eric Heerema, the winemaking team for the last seven years has been headed up by the highly talented Canadian winemaker Cherie Spriggs and her husband Brad Greatrix. Pascal Marty is the estate’s French viticulturist.

The key to success has been, in Cherie's words, the “nit picking” and focusing on every aspect of quality and selection from the vineyard to the blending and ageing. And to put this into stark context – Cherie refused to make any wine at all in the difficult 2012 vintage, because she felt the fruit and resultant wines were simply not good enough to go under the Nyetimber name and label. We must say the 2010 vintage faired much better!

Food Match

Wonderful aperitif, or try with shellfish and sushi.

In the press

Gold - International Wine Challenge 2017

Gold Outstanding - International Wine & Spirits Competition 2017: "Energised, vibrant and beautifully balanced, with delicate floral notes over baked, honeyed fruit and a lively finish. This is an enjoyable and impressive example of current English winemaking, and still has a future of interesting development ahead of it."
