Nyetimber Tillington Single Vineyard 2010 English Sparkling Wine

Nyetimber has had a since single aim for the past 20 years, to make the finest English Sparkling wine to rival the very best in the world, including Champagne. Nyetimber was the first English producer to create sparkling wine from the three grape varieties found in Champagne. Owner, Eric Heerema and winemaker Cherie Spriggs create all their sparkling wines from one hundred percent grapes grown on their estate. Located in the south downs, Nyetimber planted their first vines in 1988 and now boasts a 170-hectare vineyard plot. The chalky soil of the south downs provides the ideal conditions for grape growing.

The Tillington vineyard is located in the middle of the South Downs National Park, on the narrow greensand strip formed during the Cretaceous Period. The geology is of prime importance here since it has determined the characteristics of the shallow soil above - excellent underlying drainage, low natural fertility - and influences the development of the vine roots. The Chardonnay & Pinot Noir vines grow on a south facing slope, ranging between a 5% and 10% incline to capture the sunlight.

The 2010 vintage began with temperatures slightly less than previous years however, the colder weather was in fact much drier than before. During the early parts of the year, the weather hardly fluctuated and this lead into a late spring and early summer where the buds began to flower in great conditions. The crop was large and the flavours in the grapes benefited from a slow gradual ripening process.

Nyetimber Tillington Single Vineyard 2010 has a light gold hue. There are toasted notes on the nose that lead to hints of crème brulee. On the palate, levels of strawberry and cherry are present and this leads to a fresh finish that lingers long.

“22% Chardonnay, 78% Pinot Noir grown on a superior block of the estate's vineyards in West Sussex. Winemaker Cherie Spriggs. TA 8.4 g/l, RS 9.5 g/l, pH 2.93.
Tasted blind. Light and open on the nose. Relatively simple. Something a little like hard candy on the nose. Not much length. Is this the Krug Grande Cuvée based on 2007 (launched in November 2016)? Very embryonic. A tad sweet and simple. ”

“Pale colour with hints of sherbert and loads of citrus and lemon fruits and a slight hint of chalkiness. Great dollop of fruit on the palate cooked pear and reminds me of a cox's apple, held in the mouth for a while and you start to get some of that creaminess hints of custard; which should likely come out further with more age. Crisp acidity will make this ideal with food. Lovely long length. This top priced English sparkler is looking good with similar characteristics to those chalky and lemony champagnes that come from the premier cru village of Chouilly in Champagne.”

“78% Pinot Noir, 22% Chardonnay. Acidity 8.4 g/l, pH 2.93, residual sugar 9.5 g/l. Bottled on 1 June 2011. Riddling date 30 July 2014. Disgorged on 14 August 2014. 2009 was first vintage of Tillington. 2010 just released. Tillington exists because they're keeping sub blocks separate. Mainly Pinot which has a character they love. They like to release early to give an idea of this Pinot fruit.
A bit bony somehow on the nose. Big and bold. Lots of impact. Quite dramatic. You could drink this with food. Long undertow.”
