Recently disgorged 1992, the first commercial vintage of Nyetimber and one for the top wines from the NEWTS dinner last night. Fine brioche and apples, with poised mousse and a very long finish; acidity balanced with faint hint of sweetness (don't know the dose age but expect 7-8g). Very good indeed... Perhaps it's time to reassess my position on English sparkling wine?

It's not often a wine has more acidity than champagne, but here's one. Could do with some more sugar to balance that acidity, but there are still lovely complex aromas of apples, pears, and brioche.

Green apple, caramel, zesty acid. One of the loveliest English sparklers I've had to date.

What an incredible introduction to real UK sparkling wine! I'm just blown away by the quality. Ridiculous. #valkyrieselections #swc

Great times on the deck w/ Stirlings. Perfect match with some caviar.

Fine minerality but a bit short n too oxidized for my taste. Reminds a little of cava.

Excellent expression of fruit & minerality. Dosage, at 10.5g/L, was noticeably too high for a tightly knit brut style.
