About the Wine
This superb white Sparkling wine created by Nyetimber originates from England. Available in 75cl bottles, supplied by Nyetimber Ltd. Nyetimber Classic Cuvee is a flavourful wine, made with Shiraz/Syrah and Grenache/Garnacha grapes. This cork closed wine is created with added sulphites. Like many wines in our list, this wine is suitable for vegan diets. A wonderful accompaniment to seafood or canapés featuring duck or beetroot.
Chardonnay can produce quality wines in a wide range of climates, with a real varied style. In cool climates like Champagne or Chablis it produces a lean steely wine with pronounced acidity. In warmer climates it develops buttery, honey notes whereas hotter climates, it's richer in body with the flavour of tropical fruits.
- Green Apple
A temperamental thin skinned grape and difficult to grow, when produced of any quality it demands high prices. The thin skin means it's very light in colour body and tannin, it characteristically has searing acidity and full lingering flavours of raspberry, strawberry, cherry, violets and sweet spice.
In 2006, Eric Heerema became the owner and custodian of Nyetimber, believing that the estate, with its ideal soil and location, had yet to achieve full potential. In 2018, Head Winemaker Cherie Spriggs won the title of Sparkling Winemaker of the Year at the International Wine Challenge, making history by becoming the first female and person from outside of Champagne to win this prestigious award, testament to her expertise and commitment to elevating Nyetimber to the status it has today.
Our national vineyards are growing and thriving and this is an exciting time for the burgeoning industry with 2018 being a record year and forecasts set to grow to production of 40 million bottles by 2040.Explore England
