A very attractive wine with great freshness and zing! The memorable hot summer of 2003 has resulted in one of the fruitiest wines from Nyetimber.
In appearance, the wine is brilliant gold with a fine-beaded mousse.
On the nose, there are aromas of mandarins and vanilla with notes of lemon zest, shortbread and light apricot underneath. This is a very fruit-driven cuvee with yeasty and biscuity notes playing a supporting role.
On the palate, all three grape varieties are in evidence, but Chardonnay is to the fore at the moment. Concentrated in fruit flavours of pink grapefruit, melon and apricots, the wine displays a pure minerality and is typically complex and well balanced.
