It will be available in the UK from Harrods, Farr Vintners and Lay and Wheeler for a retail price of £75.00. The wine is made from a blend of 78% Pinot Noir and 22% Chardonnay and only 4,117 bottles of the Tillington 2010 have been created.
Cherie Spriggs, head winemaker, said: “Since first tasting the fruit at Tillington in 2009, there’s been something really magical – quite exceptional – about this one particular parcel of Pinot Noir. The wonderful flavours that we’d tasted in 2009 were again present in the fruit during the 2010 harvest, and I simply had to share these by making a second vintage of this very special wine.”
Nyetimber was the first producer of English sparkling wine to exclusively grow the three champagne grape varieties: Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay.
