Nyetimber Blanc de Blancs 2007

2007 saw the arrival of husband and wife team, Brad and Cherie, at Nyetimber. Their first vintage maintained the noughties’ approach of zero malo – and this perhaps showed more than on the 2003.

Despite its relative age, and compared to the wines that preceded it, the 2007 has a noticeably fresher and greener nose. I picked up aromas of green apple, pear and citrus, but also an elegant floral tone as well as toasted bread.

To taste, the acidity immediately breaks through, commanding attention and making its presence known. Again, I found the flavour profile to be predominantly green orchard fruit and citrus at its core, interweaved with light pastry as well as minerality and lemon zest on the finish.

I think this wine perfectly demonstrates a winery in transition – a zippy, youthful nerviness combined with the promise of structure and refinement. However, it’s only a first glimpse of what Cherie and Brad would go on to deliver for Nyetimber.
