The first to make the wine world stand up and take notice...
Few wineries in the world have dared to take on Champagne, but that’s exactly what owner and chief executive Eric Heerema and head winemaker Cherie Spriggs have done. Nyetimber were the first in England to grow Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and notoriously fickle Pinot Noir - the revered trinity of grapes that make up the world’s finest sparkling wines.
Nyetimber are now established as one of the world’s leading sparkling wine producers and have succeed in crafting wines of exceptional quality, impressing top wine judges and triumphing against the established names of Champagne in blind tastings.Key to Nyetimber’s success is the estate’s south-facing vineyards that lie on chalk or greensand soil, nestled across the South of England. Each Nyetimber vineyard was carefully selected to ensure the ideal conditions for the slow ripening of the grapes to give the optimum level of acidity and the complexity and finesse for which Nyetimber is renowned.
Nyetimber Classic Cuvee is elegant and supremely poised with tantalising aromas of citrus fruit and brioche, leading to a wonderfully generous and complex palate. This is a beautiful bubbly worthy of the most memorable celebrations.
