The Nyetimber estate counts three major landmarks in its history. Its earliest beginnings saw it first recorded in the Domesday Book in 1086. Then there was the planting of the first vines, almost exactly 900 years later. Most recently, there was the decision in 2006 that Nyetimber wines deserved an audience on the world stage. Nyetimber is in the fortunate position to own one hundred percent of their vineyards and all of their wines are produced from the 152 hectares planted at the best sites in West Sussex and Hampshire. Nyetimber’s vineyards were the first to be devoted exclusively to the holy trinity of Champagne grapes: chardonnay, pinot meunier and pinot noir.
A beautiful sunset pink colour. Aromas of red fruits with intriguing spice notes of anise and lavender. The palate has a creamy round texture with redcurrant, raspberry and cherry flavours. An elegant, silky finish.
Typically a great match with fish - baked or cold, oysters and caviar
Each vineyard parcel is fermented separately in stainless steel tanks. All wines are crafted according to the strict rules of the traditional method, aged for at least three years on the lees and given sufficient post-disgorgement time before release.
