For many of our customers, the award winning wines from Nyetimber Estate need no introduction; we’ve sold them since the first release of the 1992 Nyetimber Blanc de Blancs and have championed them ever since. They have expanded a little bit over the years but still remain true to the Estate’s original philosophy. Nyetimber is in the fortunate position to own one hundred percent of its vineyards and all of their wines are produced from the 152 hectares they have planted at the best sites in West Sussex and Hampshire. Fortunate enough to grow and vinify their own Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes Nyetimber Estate only release their wines when they’re ready to be enjoyed.
Southern England is perfect for the production of sparkling wine. The chalk seam that supplies Champagne grapes with the perfect green sand and chalky soil to flourish is the very same that runs under the lee of the South Downs. This is where, sheltered from the coastal winds, Nyetimber’s vines are planted across eight separate sites. The climate here allows for the slow ripening of the grapes, achieving the optimum level of acidity for the wine, as well as complexity and finesse.
