NYETIMBER 1086 Prestige Cuvée Rosé 2010
1086 Prestige Cuvée Rosé is the jewel in Nyetimber’s winemaking crown and demonstrates what world-class Pinot Noir England is capable of producing. Fashioned from Nyetimber’s finest West Sussex estate-grown fruit it spent almost five years ageing on the lees and over two in the bottle post-disgorgement. The result is a thing of beauty rich with strawberry jam redcurrant toasted blanched almonds baked red apple Strawberry Mivvi and a crystal-clear finish reminiscent of Chablis. Only a month after its release 1086 Prestige Cuvée Rosé performed admirably in a blind tasting against prestige rosé cuvées from Billecart-Salmon and Taittinger attended by industry experts including Jancis Robinson. We recommend taking your time over this complex rosé not only will it develop in the bottle but it also evolves beautifully in the glass. And on that matter we suggest serving it in a wine glass to allow it to unravel and breathe.
Launched a millennia after the ‘Nitimbreha’ estate was first recorded in the Domesday Book and 30 years since Nyetimber planted their first vines the 1086 Premium Cuvée Range looks set to propel English Sparkling Wine to new heights and will only be crafted in exceptional vintages. Not content with being just one of the UK’s most celebrated producers and rivalling the competition in Champagne these wines may put clear water between Nyetimber and the rest of the field. 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.
