Nyetimber, Tillington, Single Vineyard, Sparkling

2014

Tasting Notes


ABV:
12 %

Notes

Produced from 78% Pinot Noir and 22% Chardonnay, the Tillington 2014 is the estate’s 4th release of this cuvee, the other years being 2009, 2010 and 2013. Since then, English Sparkling Wine has seen quite the rise. As early pioneers, Nyetimber were prescient in their insistence on classic Champagne varieties only and long lees aging before disgorgement. Indeed, the 2014 spent five years on the lees, producing a biscuit and blossom led sparkling wine, with touches of citrus, apples, red berries and rose. Long and intense on the palate with soft, fine bubbles, it’s a wine that has built its reputation as one of the country’s very best.

Nyetimber

Nyetimber

Nyetimber was the first producer to really put English Sparkling Wine on the map. After years of English growers labouring with high acid Germanic and hybrid grape varieties, Nyetimber was the first estate to devote their efforts exclusively to the Champagne varieties Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. First established in 1988, the owners planted vines and occupied the estate for a decade before selling up and returning the USA, being American by birth. A short hiatus followed, until 2006 when it was acquired by Eric Heerema, a passionate investor. Ambitious plans were laid and a young ambitious Canadian couple were appointed to run the show. Brad Geatrix and Cherie Spriggs have taken the Nyetimber brand and overall quality to ever-greater heights and recognition for their sparkling wines is spreading around the world. The estate has grown immensely and is large by English standards, spanning 170 hectares across West Sussex and Hampshire, and yet they can boast 100% ownership of each and every vine - an impressive achievement. While the majority of production is focused on the Classic Cuvee, designated NV post-2010 to make use of their extensive reserve wines, ambitious plans continue and the Tillington Single Vineyard looks set to become the flagship prestige cuvee of the UK, hoping to rival the likes of Dom Perignon and Krug in the future.
