Winemaker's Notes:

Nyetimber's history has been colourful, its vinous ownership having passed from<br/>the American Stuart Moss, via the flamboyant pop impressario Andy Hill to the<br/>Dutch entrepreneur Eric Heerema. In the more distant past it was built by Henry<br/>V111 for Anne of Cleves, although she never actually took ownership, thanks,<br/>famously, to Holbein's pictorial exaggeration of her charms The 2005 Classic<br/>Cuvée is made from approximately 60% Chardonnay , the balance divided<br/>fairly evenly between the two Pinots, Noir and Meunier. <br/> <br/>The wine has exuberant youthful aromas, with hints of honey, lemon zest and<br/>shortbread all evidenced; on the palate there is the characteristic Nyetimber<br/>autolytic weight allied to notes of quince and grapefruit and even flavours<br/>which are heading towards the more exotic end of the fruit spectrum. A clean<br/>quite complex finish completes the picture in a more than satisfying fashion.<br/> <br/>(Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)
