Description & Technical Information
-
Since planting their first vines in 1988, Nyetimber have grown to become one of the leading names in the English sparkling wine industry. Nyetimber were the first English producer to create sparkling wine from the holy trinity of grape varieties found in Champagne: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier. They create all their sparkling wines solely from grapes grown on their estate, which now spans over 170-hectares in the South Downs.

Nyetimber Blanc de Blancs was the first style ever produced at Nyetimber and marked the start of their pioneering journey in the early 1990s. Crafted from a single vintage and given extended time on lees, this pure expression of Chardonnay is produced from grapes grown on Nyetimber's West Sussex and Hampshire vineyards.

Weather: A warm start to the year saw a slightly earlier budburst than average, contributing to some frost damage in the Hampshire vineyards. Fine and warm weather continued through to July, with good and timely flowering and fruitset. A cooler August followed, slightly delaying veraison, but a warm September led to gradual ripening of all three varieties before harvest began in the first week of October. Overall, the warm, fine conditions of the growing season led to an excellent quality harvest with ripe fruit flavours and beautifully balanced acidity.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: West Sussex & Hampshire
Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Ageing: 5 years on the lees
Dosage: 9.5 g/l
Cork: Mytik Diam Technological
Drink: Now to 2029

Tasting Note: Light gold hue and a fine, delicate mousse. Aromas of citrus and honeysuckle lead into subtle brioche and vanilla characters. The palate offers generous yet elegant notes of baked lemon and white peach with the warmth of the vintage shining through. Subtle mineral notes accentuate the fresh, crisp acidity, leading to a long and complex finish.

Tamlyn Currin
“This smells like an autumn apple festival! Gloriously appley. And such purity! A wine that is not relying on lees ageing to give it depth or flavour or richness – it's all there in this incredible fruit. It fills the mouth, a trumpet concerto of silver and gold notes, while the acidity feels like the spine-tingling vibrations of harp strings, thrumming up and down – I can feel this wine like a thread-fine electric current under my skin and through my bones. Translucent white spring florals dancing weightlessly through prismic citrus; lime, yuzu, grapefruit peel. Then, right at the end, a lick of cold salted butter, a dab of cumin and coriander spice. Outstanding.”
