English Sparkling Pair
Nyetimber Classic Cuvée– Nyetimber’s wines are produced from the best sites in Southern England. Nyetimber’s vineyards were the first to be devoted exclusively to the ‘holy trinity’ of Champagne grapes: Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir. Toasty, spicy and citrus on the nose. The palate supports these complex aromas with honey, almond, pastry and baked apple flavours. Very fine and elegant with a great combination of intensity and delicacy.
Hattingley Valley Classic Cuvée– Hattingley Valley Vineyard, between Medstead and Wield, Hampshire. Situated on chalky bedrock like the terroir in the Champagne region, this 7.3 hectare south-facing site supports 22,000 vines. Vibrant baked apple, creamy nougat and brioche notes on the nose, supported by a hint of toast and fresh red fruit. With notes of soft lemon sherbet on the palate, the wine has a beautiful weight from partial oak fermentation of the base wine. Refreshing and perfectly balanced, this wine has a delightful long finish. Now replaced with the Reserve, a blend of several vintages.
