Sporting a new look label, this latest release from Nyetimber continues the producer’s pioneering approach of non-vintage English Sparkling wine. It’s the most complex blend to date, made predominantly from 70% of the 2014 vintage, but with a further five vintages of reserve wines included in the mix.
Aromas of peaches and cream, toasted biscuit and brown sugar with pastry and almond complexity, then all the freshness and punchy green apple youth that the ’14 vintage brings.
Upon tasting, I felt instantly that this really hit the mark. There’s a perfect balance between the zesty vibrancy and the riper stone fruit flavours, whilst the nutty, biscuity notes of the reserve wines add depth, complexity and charm.
This is so finely tuned, my first impression is that it is the finest release of Nyetimber Classic Cuvée for quite some time.
This wine’s price (£150) and presentation makes a huge statement but it’s Nyetimber’s quality and precise approach that makes it a standout.
Drinking superbly right now, but will be truly exceptional with more time in the bottle.
An exceptionally balanced Blanc de Blancs from Nyetimber that is only just entering its stride and with a long life ahead.
A deeper rosé with rich wild strawberry, raspberry and a hint of winter spice.
Honeyed pastry notes add weigh to a clean mineral backbone in this delicate but expressive Rosé.
A hugely impressive and appealing wine demonstrating sublime integration and development.
