The pale-golden hue and fine bubbles make the flagship Classic Cuvee Multi-Vintage the ideal occasion-ready drink – whether it’s toasting a big birthday or simply finishing a busy week. Following extensive ageing in the cellar (usually more than three years), the Classic Cuvee Multi-Vintage has distinctive toasty and spicy aromas. A palate of honey, almond, pastry and baked apples gives it a hint of decadence. Intense yet delicate, elegant yet complex – it’s no wonder it’s consistently crowned one of the best English sparkling wines.
The signature wine of Nyetimber is a classic blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier and is a perfect balance of elegance and intensity. The blend includes wines from all their vineyards and also from several vintages.
The origins of the house date back as far as 1086, with an entry in the Domesday Book for the Manor of Nyetimber, which means `new timbered house`. The original vineyards extended to some 14 hectares, planted on gentle south-facing slopes with the classic grape varieties of the Champagne region. The vines are planted closely together to create a unique micro-climate, leading to wines of distinct fruit character.
This delicate English sparkling wine is a beautiful pale gold in colour. Toasty on the nose with complex aromas showing wonderful development after more than three years on lees. The palate supports these complex aromas with honey, almond, pastry and baked apple flavours. Very fine and elegant with a great combination of intensity, delicacy and length.
Serve with smoked salmon on toast with crème fraîche.
