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's 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 and Pinot Noir vines grow on a south-facing slope, ranging between a 5% and 10% incline to best capture the sunlight.

Weather: Overall 2013 produced an average sized yield, it was due to be very high but as the year went on this was looking less likely. Following a long cold winter, the bud burst was delayed due to some frosts however the summer months were bright and sunny giving ideal conditions for the grapes to grow and mature. Overall the harvest took slightly longer than normal around 10 days.

Tasting Note: As the fine bubbles rise to the top of this pale gold wine, aromas of wild strawberries and raspberries emerge, and are reminiscent of British summer fruits. On the palate this delicate fruit is accompanied by complex flavours of toasted almonds, pastry and praline. The wine balances elegance and richness in perfect harmony, with a refreshing acidity and a textured, decadent finish.
Nyetimber Overview
Expert Reviews
Jancis Robinson MW
“76% Pinot Noir, 24% Chardonnay grown in a single West Sussex vineyard. RS 9.7 g/l.
Tasted blind. Quite deep gold. Putty nose, nicely integrated. Not too tart. Quite assertive. Some attractive evolution on this. Lots of nuance here. Not that long but a very good effort.”
Neal Martin
“The 2013 Tillington Single Vineyard, a blend of 24% Chardonnay and 76% Pinot Noir, was disgorged December 2017. It offers toasted almonds, crushed strawberry and traces of dried honey on the nose, and later just a touch of beeswax. The palate is taut on the entry with sour lemon, honey and pralines, just the right amount of bitterness and a taut if slightly uncomplicated finish. ”
William Kelley
“A blend of 76% Pinot Noir and 24% Chardonnay that was disgorged in July 2017, the 2013 Brut Tillington Single Vineyard opens in the glass with an exotic bouquet of musky peaches, mandarin, honeycomb and mango. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and layered, with good depth and dimension at the core, ripe but racy acids and an aromatic finish. To my palate, this gives Nytimber's cuvée 1086 a run for its money.”
