Nyetimber\\\'s classic signature of delicate floral and citrus aromas, subtle vanilla and toast flavours, but now with a pure crystalline core

This Blanc de Blancs shows Nyetimber’s classic signature of delicate floral and citrus aromas followed by subtle vanilla and toast flavours, but now with a pure crystalline core thanks to the inclusion of Chardonnay from their Hampshire vineyards. It is a lovely pale gold in colour with a fine bead. A long, complex finish makes this a wine to be savoured. In 2013 budburst occurred at the end of April, about two weeks later than average due to cool temperatures in March and April, and the cool temperatures continued through June. Flowering started in the second week of July, and a great fruit set was observed two weeks later, thanks to a warm and dry month. The second half of the season, from August onwards, was moderate and fine, enabling the fruit to ripen gradually. Harvest started on 8th October and finished on the 24th. A late burst of warmth that month allowed Nyetimber to bring in nicely balanced grapes.

www.jancisrobinson.com tasting note: “Pale straw with a greenish tinge. Very light, flirtatious nose. This tastes as though it has been deliberately styled to contrast with the Classic Cuvée that is a blend of different varieties. Quite marked, though not excessive, acidity. Really delicate texture. Tightrope balance. A ballerina of a wine with convincing persistence. Rather pure. Not trying to be champagne. 17/20” (Jancis Robinson)
