A very elegant blanc de blancs with delicate notes of tarte citron, satsumas, green grapes and lightly whipped cream. There's a lovely delicacy here; one for oysters. 70% of the fruit came from West Sussex; 30% from Hampshire. Just 3% of the wine was vinified in new Burgundian oak barrels. 95 Points' - Susy Atkins, Decanter

'This wine has generosity and precision at the same time, with keen but well integrated acidity underpinning the ripe citrus, pear and apple fruit. There's some bready, toasty richness, but it doesn't obscure the fine, well structured fruit. There's a very slight buttery, creamy richness, presumably from the malolactic fermentation, and then a long, tapering finish with lovely lemony fruit, and table grape and nectarine richness. Drinking beautifully now, this wine is really harmonious and nicely poised. 93/100' - Jamie Goode, Wine Anorak

"As she accepted the coverted accolade of 'Sparkling Winemaker of the Year 2018' at the International Wine Challenge, Cherie Spriggs made history: not only was it the first time a winemaker outside France's Champagne region has won the industry Oscar, it was the first time it has been awarded to a woman"- Jo Foley, Daily Mail.

With birthday celebrations in April, sparkling wine is on my mind! When it comes to celebratory events, I always turn to English Sparkling over Champagne and this one is of my favourites from Nyetimber with a beautiful balance of focused elegance and richness. - Katy Barker, OWC
