Blanc de Blancs 2013
“Really delicate texture. Tightrope balance. A ballerina of a wine with convincing persistence. Rather pure. Not trying to be Champagne.” – Jancis Robinson
Made by the International Wine Challenge’s Sparkling Winemaker of the Year 2018, Nyetimber’s Blanc de Blancs 2013 is quite different from the Classic Cuvée. This pure Chardonnay flits like a butterfly from the delicate florals of spring blossom to the creamy citrus zest of lemon curd, from pear to Granny Smith, and then from vanilla pod to toast and salted butter. Crafted using a high proportion of grapes from their chalky Hampshire vineyards, this is partially fermented in barrel and aged on the lees for five years. Nyetimber once again proving that they set the benchmark for English Sparkling Wine.
The ‘Nitimbreha’ estate was written about in the Domesday Book over a millennia ago and for the last few decades, Nyetimber has been the vanguard for English Sparkling Wine around the world. Regularly beating Champagne in blind tastings, each new release is eagerly anticipated. The team of Cherie Spriggs, Brad Greatrix and Eric Heerema fell in love with our south coast because, from a vinous perspective, “there’s something really special happening in England.” Prized for the elegance of their wines, Nyetimber is a force to be reckoned with on an international scale.
