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.
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.
