Nyetimber Classic Cuvée half bottle (1x 37.5cl)

Winemaker, Cherie Spriggs, is central to every decision that gets made at Nyetimber. She assesses each and every handpicked vineyard individually. This means choosing the optimal time to harvest the grapes, supervising their gentle pressing and their eventual vinification in stainless steel tanks. This level of knowledge allows her to make informed decisions about blending wines the following spring.

Southern England is perfect for the production of sparkling wine. The chalk seam that supplies Champagne grapes with the perfect green sand and chalky soil to flourish is the very same that runs under the lee of the South Downs. This is where, sheltered from the coastal winds, Nyetimber's vines are planted across eight separate sites. The climate here allows for the slow ripening of their grapes, allowing them to achieve the optimum level of acidity for the wine, as well as the complexity and finesse that they strive for. At Nyetimber they only use grapes from their own vineyards. Prior to harvest, the grapes are tasted to ensure the best flavour development before picking. And if they aren’t up to standard? They simply won’t use them.

All Nyetimber's wines are made according to the traditional 'méthode champenoise', ageing them for extended periods of time and giving the bottles sufficient post-disgorgement time before release. 

Nyetimer Classic Cuvée is a lovely pale gold colour with gentle and fine bubbles.  The aromas are toasty, spicy and complex, showing wonderful development after spending more than three years on its lees in the cellar. The palate supports the complex aromas and is enriched with the flavours of honey, almond, pastry and baked apples.  This sparkling wine is very elegant with a great combination of intensity, delicacy and length.

Delightfully fresh to the palate, its fine bubbles are invigorated by a discreet touch of tannin, with the same very charming and fruity elegance.

Peter Lehmann Masters `Black Queen` Sparkling Shiraz 2013 (1x75cl)

Peter Lehmann, with 33 vintages already under his belt, started his own winery in 1979, partly as a means of helping with the glut of grapes then afflicting the Barossa. "I'll take your grapes and turn them into wine," he told the desperate growers, many of them conservative farmers of Silesian descent who regarded their old vines as part of their patrimony. "But I'll only be able to pay you when I sell the wine." They gratefully accepted. Without this deal, it is widely thought that the Barossa would have lost a huge chunk of its old vines. The 'Masters' wines are made from the parcels regarded by the winemakers as the best Semillon, Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz of the vintage.

Peter Lehmann Wines works with over 140 growers across the length and breadth of the Barossa Valley region, with access to over 750 individual vineyard sites. The Black Queen is made from Shiraz grown on old, low-yielding vines in premium vineyards in the Moppa and Light Pass districts.

Often referred to as the jewel in their/his crown, Lehmann's lack Queen Sparkling Shiraz is a unique and indulgent wine using grapes sourced from premium vineyards in the Barossa region, used to craft this exceptional wine. 

See blue link below for the excellent fiche technique/technical note from Peter Lehmann.

Riserva del Fondatore Giulio Ferrari 2007 (1 x 75cl)

The 2006 Vintage was Awarded a very rare 98 points by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their February 2018 edition review of Italian Icon Wines (see blue link below).

Ferrari Giulio 2006 - Feb 2018 Decanter review

Inspired by the example of Champagne and informed by his winemaking studies in Montpellier, Giulio Ferrari’s vision for the products which bear his name was unstinting: to make the finest Metodo Classico sparkling wines in Italy. A bold pledge in 1902, but to this day, the wines of Ferrari remain true to their original creator, persisting through the arrival of the Lunelli family as owners of the business in 1952. It’s an approach that has now persisted through two more generations. This consistent philosophy has turned Giulio’s dream into reality, with Ferrari today acknowledged as the finest sparkling wine producer in the country.

The iconic Italian sparkling wine par excellence, Giulio Ferrari is an outstanding product that is designed to stand the test of time. It is a Trentodoc obtained from the finest Chardonnay grapes from the Lunelli family’s own vineyards on the slopes of the mountainsides that surround Trento, at up to 600 meters above sea level. It matures on its lees for over 10 years, acquiring great complexity but, at the same time, maintaining balance, freshness and elegance.  It has obtained extremely high ratings in the most authoritative trade magazines, including 98/100 from Decanter and 96/100 from the Wine Advocate. Giulio Ferrari is also the only sparkler that has been selected by “Wine Spectator” as one of Italy’s top 10 wines (for its “Best of Italy Tasting” at the Wine Experience) and it has been selected by “Wine Enthusiast” for its “Top 100 Wine Cellar Selection”.

2006 was an extraordinary year for the grapes destined for making Trentodoc. The long, cold winter delayed the start of the vegetative cycle by about two weeks, but exceptionally hot, dry weather at the end of spring and the beginning of summer allowed the vines to catch up to some extent. In August, abundant rains built up the water reserves and, at the same time, created a cooler climate. The Chardonnay cultivated on our mountainside vineyards developed particularly rich aromas and an excellent level of health, both of which were preserved by the favourable weather conditions during the harvest, which began on 24th August.

It presents itself in the glass with a glowing golden hue, highlighted by extremely fine, persistent bubbles. The bouquet displays an incredible succession of sensations that continue to alternate, ranging from citrus zest to creamy eggnog, from mango to sugared almonds, and from acacia blossom to freshly baked brioche, all underpinned by an enticing hint of iodine. The entry on the palate is sumptuous in its unbridled elegance and light in its incredibly concentrated fruitiness, which offers reminiscences of ripe pineapple, dried fruits and toasted hazelnuts. The finish is very refined, revealing lingering brackish notes that give even greater length to the aftertaste.

Ruggeri Brut Di Pinot Nero Rose NV (1x 75cl)

"Ruggeri - hands down, this is one of the top five Prosecco producers", Decanter, July 2013

The Ruggeri winery was established in 1950 by Giustino Bisol, whose family boasts a deeply rooted, centuries-old tradition in viticulture in the Valdobbiadene area.  The winery was established in Santo Stefano di Valdobbiadene to produce and promote the sparkling Prosecco Superiore and Cartizze wines. It was originally housed in small premises in the village of Santo Stefano di Valdobbiadene. After a temporary move to a larger site in the centre of the village, in the early Nineties it was relocated to new, larger and more rational premises which can receive and process almost 3,000 tons of grapes which are brought there every harvest. Today the winery is run by Paolo Bisol, who is assisted by his children Giustino and Isabella.

The Prosecco Superiore DOCG grapes are usually delivered by over a hundred vine-growers. Nearly all of them have their vineyards in the municipality of Valdobbiadene, while 25 also grow Cartizze grapes. It should be noted that many of the superior vineyards lie in the historic districts of San Pietro di Barbozza. Santo Stefano and Saccol, which have always been renowned for producing the best in terms of quality. Ruggeri owns a small vineyard of Cartizze and 20 hectares on the nearby Montello, 12 of them are cultivated with Pinot Grigio and Glera (traditionally called Prosecco). About 1 hectare is dedicated to the growing of Recantina, an ancient and authochtonous red grape variety which was recovered thanks to the hard work of cooperation with the Istituto Sperimentale Per la Viticoltura di Conegliano (School of Viticulture of Conegliano).
