The pinnacle of Nyetimber's winemaking. Prestige Cuvee, 1086, represents the very finest of Nyetimber’s wines. The first ever Prestige Cuvee made in England, their 2010 vintage has a rich and generous fruit character alongside a savoury and caramelised flavour, the result of almost a decade of ageing.

Nyetimber

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.
The 2010 vintage has an elegant pale golden colour and the finest of bubbles. Complex aromas including fresh grapefruit, nougat and a fine minerality. The palate is both delicate and yet generous with great intensity and a lovely touch of vanilla on the delightfully long finish.
Enjoy with pan seared scallops.
