"The freshness and fruit of green and yellow apples combines on the nose. The palate takes this theme further to present both Granny Smith freshness and Golden Delicious roundedness. The palate is poised with fine, creamy mousse but softened by generous dosage. Along with the vivid apple fruit this coalesces into a creamy, fresh, acutely balanced style of fizz that speaks of clarity, sophistication and richness. The finish is off-dry and long."
"Brioche and baked apple on the nose and palate – the dosage really helps sweeten the flavour profile but without giving overt sugar on the finish. In fact, it still seems reasonably savoury, thanks to high acidity. This style works really well for English fizz. 17/20 points. (RH)"
Vinous Reverie Notes
100% Chardonnay. Sourced from south facing estate vineyards with greensand and chalk soils in West Sussex. Hand picked in small crates and immediately pressed in a Coquard press, each parcel kept separate. Elevage on the lees in stainless steel. Demi-Sec MV (multi-vintage) contains 20-20% reserve wine and spends an average of 30 months on the lees. Tasting Notes: The NV Demi-Sec from Nyetimber contains 44 grams per liter of residual sugar and comes mainly from the 2013 vintage. It has a light and rather austere bouquet with hints of dried honey, walnut and blackcurrant leaf. The palate is rounded on the entry and manages to neatly balance the sweetness of a demi-sec with the acidity. Pralines and almond define the harmonious finish with hints of apricot.
