Nyetimber Classic Cuvee

One of seven sparkling wines produced by this winery in the South East of England, the classic cuvee is their flagship wine. Made from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier grapes grown over the three counties of Kent, Sussex and Hampshire and multiple vintages. Like most English sparkling wine it is made using the champagne method.

Yellow in colour with plentiful small bubbles. Medium scent of apple and the classic carbonisation.

Like the Chapel Down this is redolent of apples. Mature yellow apples in this case and none of the citrus acidity. It’s a smoother wine. Stronger flavour and lingering finish. It slides down the throat frighteningly easy with tight bubbles that you barely notice just a tingle on the tongue.

A dry wine but so fruity that it seems sweeter. This has more apple flavour than cider. Good body for a sparkling wine, but still fresh.

I liked this wine but not enough to pay £37 for it.
