Nyetimber Classic Cuvée 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Due to unprecented demand, we are awaiting a further shipment of this product and orders will be fulfilled in the week commencing 15th February. Nyetimber Vineyard pioneered the UK's recent rise to fame and recognition for its ability to be taken seriously at international level. The estate was conceived, planted and equipped exclusively for the production of top-quality sparkling wines. Just over fourteen hectares (thirty-five acres) of gentle, south-facing slopes of greensand soil were planted with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, the classic varieties of the Champagne region. The hot summer of 2003 has resulted in one of the fruitiest wines from Nyetimber yet. The 2003 Classic Cuvée, a blend of 60% Chardonnay, 23% Pinot Noir and 17% Pinot Meunier, is brilliant golden in colour, has a fine-beaded mousse and a nose that shows aromas of mandarins, vanilla with notes of lemon zest, shortbread and light apricot underneath. This is a very fruit-driven cuvée, with yeasty and biscuity notes playing the supporting role. Fresh and pure yet complex on the palate, it has a bright and cheery start, compact and concentrated in fruit flavours of pink grapefruit, melon and apricots, and lovely minerality. All three varieties are in evidence, but with Chardonnay to the fore at the moment. This wine was awarded a Silver Medal at the 2009 International Wine Challenge

A new era for English wine began in 1988 when the first Nyetimber vineyards were planted in the heart of West Sussex. The aim – to make premium sparkling wine that would rival Champagne. That aim has been fully realised, and over the years the wines have attracted international acclaim and set a high benchmark for premium sparkling wines the world over. Now the largest vineyard in the UK, the Nyetimber Estate comprises 350 acres under vine and it is the fusion of expertise in the vineyard together with highly skilled winemaking that sets the wines apart. Also unique in the UK, Nyetimber is the only producer to make premium sparkling wine exclusively from estate grown fruit, thus ensuring complete control at every stage of the process. Classic Cuvée is the signature style from Nyetimber and is a blend of white Chardonnay fruit and Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, both black grapes. Vintage dated each year, our winemakers draw upon this palette of base wines to create a wine of structure and complexity through the exacting process of 'assemblage', or blending Read less
