WINE REVIEW

Tillington is a single site at Nyetimber’s original West Sussex location. Few sites in the country have as much prestige. This wine is the jewel in the sizeable Nyetimber crown.

Clearly Pinot-driven from nose and palate. Wonderful depth of earthy Pinot flavour meets red berry and crunchy apple. It’s hanging on to a little of the sherbet character that was prominent on first release. It’s rounded out by creamy, nutty, pastry notes – autolytic qualities that Nyetimber accomplish so well.

Weight and breadth contribute to a wonderful mouthfeel. Despite all the richness, it’s got great lift, precision and a driving acidity. Such balance and finesse.

Drinking Tillington is always a treat, and this was no different. Time under cork has clearly added to the excellence.
