Nyetimber Celebrates 30 Years With the Release of New 1086 Sparkling White And Rose
October 2, 2018
It’s been quite a year for delicious English sparkling wine Nyetimber! The wonderful Cherie Spriggs celebrated Sparkling Winemaker of the Year at the International Wine Challenge, while the Blanc de Blancs 2010 also won English Sparkling Blanc de Blancs Trophy at International Wine. And now, to celebrate the 30 year history of this incredible wine, Nyetimber have just launched the 1086.
The prestige cuvee is the ultimate expression of a vision conceived by owner Eric Heerema, available in both white and rosé and made from a selection of over 90 outstanding wines which have been exceptionally crafted by both Cherie and her husband Brad Greatrix.
Produced entirely from 100% estate-grown fruit, 1086 was unveiled at a lavish event held at none other than the Ritz last week, as a select guest list including Luxuria Lifestyle, tried out the superb sparklings which are best described by Cherie herself who poetically described the prestige cuvee as being “characterised by its balance, acidity, length and texture, with these qualities combining seamlessly on the palate”.
Guests were also treated to a first glimpse of the supported media campaign video – a first for the brand, which features professional violinist Sally Potterton.
Nyetimber is available at exclusive retailers including Fortnum & Mason and Harrods, as well as selected accounts such as The Lanesborough, 67 Pall Mall and Oswald’s priced at £150 for the 1086 and £175 for the 1086 Rosé.
