Sparkling, off-dry white; sourdough, classy | Fish in all its forms
This historic estate in England’s sleepy South Downs broke the mould through the work of Head Winemaker Cherie Spriggs together with her husband Brad Greatrix. Growing only the three classic Champagne grapes, which slowly ripen to perfection in sheltered sites, Nyetimber has shaken up the wine world as it lives up to its mission to rival the world’s best sparkling wines.
Nyetimber's Blanc de Blancs is the cuvée that caused a stir in 1997, when it trumped several grand marques Champagnes in a blind tasting. Since then, it has gone from strength to strength and the 2013 vintage benefits from the addition of fruit from the Hampshire sites. You can find out more about the launch event for the 2013 vintage in Singapore, held at JAAN in March 2019.
