- Nyetimber was planted by Americans Stuart and Sandy Moss in 1988, and since then, English sparkling wine production has never looked back. The couple were looking for a site that could rival Champagne, and they found it in the heart of West Sussex. Their vineyards have soil very similar to the Champagne region (predominantly chalk), and, believe it or not, the climate isnt massively different!
Made from the same grapes as Champagne (Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier), Nyetimber is also made in exactly the same way. Now covering a staggering 438 acres, Nyetimber is the only UK sparkling wine producer that uses only estate grown fruit, thus maintaining maximum quality control from vineyard to bottle. Today, Nyetimber leads the way in an area that is reaching global appreciation. Who said the English can't make wine?
The nose is filled with mango, oriental spices and a touch of honey.The palate is intense but also well rounded with a creamy mousse. Red berries, cherry, liquorice and currants all come into play here and linger on the long and satisfying finish.
- 'Nyetimber's West Chillington estate may be in Sussex, but it could easily be mistaken for a quaint French vineyard with its sunny, south-facing vines and grand manor house. In 25 years of pioneering English wine, their non-vintage sparkling rosé is the most recent. A tempting shade of pink, it offers distinctive redcurrant and cherry notes with intriguing hints of anise. The overall tutti- frutti flavour is vibrant, but still well-balanced.' - Olivia Williams, The Spectator, June 2018
