The ‘Nitimbreha’ estate was first mentioned in the Domesday Book, and no English sparkling wine producer has garnered more column inches since. Described by Jancis Robinson as “the English vineyard challenging Champagne”, Nyetimber is a world-beater. Consistently outperforming prestigious rivals in blind tastings, this brand has gone from strength to strength in recent years, and its elegant wines have inspired a new generation, including the likes of Rathfinny. The talented team of Cherie Spriggs, Brad Greatrix and Eric Heerema fell in love with the south coast estate because – when it comes to this country’s wines – “there’s something really special happening in England.” On tasting Nyetimber, it’s impossible to disagree.
