Description

Nyetimber’s Classic Cuvee Multi-Vintage has distinctive toasty and spicy aromas.

A palate of honey, almond, pastry and baked apples gives it a hint of decadence. Intense yet delicate, elegant yet complex – it’s no wonder it’s consistently crowned one of the best English sparkling wines.

Best enjoyed in the sunshine with some freshly caught seafood – preferably with the waves lapping at your feet.

Pairs best with smoked salmon, oysters, scallops, asparagus and sushi.

“Pristine clarity with baked bread, green apple, a touch of iodine and Marmite (yeast extract). Long, sophisticated finish with well-integrated dosage that leaves a soft impression” – Richard Hemming MW.

“Disgorged in December 2018 with nine grams per litre dosage, the latest release of the NV Brut Classic Cuvee is showing well, wafting from the glass with a pretty bouquet of citrus zest, elderflowers, green apple and very subtle autolytic top notes. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, pillowy and beautifully balanced, with a pinpoint mousse, ripe but racy acids and a nicely defined finish” – William Kelley, England: English Sparkling Wine – Recent and Forthcoming Releases, Wine Advocate”

About the vineyard

Nyetimber

Nyetimber’s vineyards share similar characteristics with the best sparkling wine vineyards in the world.

Using only estate-grown grapes from their own vineyards ensures that only the finest fruit is used to craft globally acclaimed Nyetimber wines.

Head Winemaker, Cherie Spriggs, and her Winemaker husband Brad Greatrix assess each handpicked vineyard individually – from choosing the optimal time to harvest the grapes and supervising their gentle pressing to eventual vinification.

All Nyetimber wines are crafted according to the traditional method, ageing them for extended periods of time to build complexity and flavour, and allowing for generous post-disgorgement time before release.

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.
