Nutbourne Vineyards Nutty Wild NV


10.0% ABV
Natural yeast ferment only, wild strawberries and a delicate mousse

A lower alcohol sparkling wine made by classic bottle fermentation, from 100% Pinot Noir. This is a light joyous drink with a hint of strawberries and raspberries, delicate and tangy with a soft blush tint. Produced as a simple, young, natural wine made with minimal interference, fermented to 10% alcohol.

Vines were first planted at Nutbourne in 1979 by one of the early pioneers of wine grape growing in this country. Since 1991 it has been owned, managed and expanded by the Gladwin family. The “Terroir” at Nutbourne is a unique and ideal wine growing environment – a warm microclimate protected by the South Downs, gentle south-facing slopes and the same fertile green sand soil as the Champagne region in France. There are 26 acres under vine. review: Perhaps it’s the power of suggestion, but it really does smell nutty to me! Like a toasty, seedy, nutty cracker. Plenty of prickle and wire, and for some reason it reminds me of those wonderful hand-carved, wooden marionette puppets dancing in the hands of a master puppeteer. Arrestingly savoury. A brilliant lower-alcohol option for sparkling wine; you would not notice the lower alcohol and it would be perfect for afternoon canapés (or lunch, quite frankly, if you’re like me and grew up in southern Africa where the rule was that you could have a drink as long as the (single, 11:30 am) Boeing had flown over). It’s so distinctive and different. I applaud Nutbourne for this wine! 16.5/20 (Tamlyn Currin)
