Nyetimber `Tillington` Single Vineyard 2013


Nyetimber is widely regarded as being consistently one of the top producers of english sparkling wines. We worked with them many years ago, but for whatever reason haven't had them in stock, until now, they are back in! They are based in Sussex, only make sparkling wines no still wines, and only make wines from their own estate fruit.

They planted their vineyards in 1988, so they are well established, and when ownership and a change of winemaker happened in 2006, the quality of the wines skyrocketed. We recently tasted through the range, and now have some on our shelves including the Blanc de Blancs and single vineyard Tillington wine.

Pale gold with fine bubbles, the nose is full of wild strawberries and raspberries, reminiscent of British summer fruits. On the palate this delicate fruit is accompanied by complex flavours of toasted almonds, pastry and praline. The wine balances elegance and richness in perfect harmony, with a refreshing acidity and a textured, decadent finish.
