In partnership with Nyetimber
Tis the season to feast and be merry, and we can’t think of a better accompaniment than an exquisite English Sparkling Wine…
We are giving one lucky reader the chance to win a magnum of 1086 Rosé Prestige Cuvee (RRP £375) from award-winning English Sparkling Wine producer Nyetimber, in advance of the party season.
The Nyetimber Estate was first recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086, and the name of England’s first ever prestige cuvees honours this reference.
The inaugural launch, in 2018, of 1086 Prestige Cuvee 2009 and 1086 Prestige Cuvee Rosé 2010 also marked Nyetimber’s 30th anniversary, having been the first in England to plant the celebrated grape varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier exclusively for the production of sparkling wine back in 1988.
Produced entirely from 100% estate-grown fruit, the 1086 Prestige Cuvees represent the pinnacle of what Nyetimber can achieve in a given year. They are the ultimate expression of owner Eric Heerema’s vision and his confidence in England’s ability to produce world-class sparkling wines.
Those who delighted in the 2009 vintage – and those who simply enjoy the taste of an extraordinary wine – can indulge following the release of the new 2010 vintage, a wine that is elegant pale golden in colour with complex aromas including fresh grapefruit and nougat. The palate is both delicate yet generous with great intensity and a lovely touch of vanilla on the delightfully long finish.
Nyetimber’s Head Winemaker, Cherie Spriggs said: ‘As a selection of the very best wines produced by Nyetimber in a given vintage, this 2010 vintage of 1086 represents the pinnacle of our winemaking and reaffirms England’s ability to produce an exceptional, sparkling wine.’
