Nyetimber to launch second Tillington vintage

29 April, 2016

English sparkling wine brand Nyetimber has announced the launch of its second Tillington Single Vineyard vintage. 

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.
