Nyetimber Tillington Single Vineyard 2013
A blend of 76% Pinot Noir and 24% Chardonnay that was disgorged in July 2017, the 2013 Brut Tillington Single Vineyard opens in the glass with an exotic bouquet of musky peaches, mandarin, honeycomb and mango. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and layered, with good depth and dimension at the core, ripe but racy acids and an aromatic finish. To my palate, this gives Nytimber's cuvée 1086 a run for its money.

The third bottling of this single vineyard expression of English sparkling wine is a blend of 76% Pinot Noir and 24% Chardonnay. Just 8,000 bottles were produced of the 2013 vintage. Pale lemon in colour, this has a vibrant and expressive nose of citrus, baked apple, and fresh bread. The palate is rich and creamy, with more body and power than the 2010 at this stage. The mousse is persistent yet fine, effortlessly carrying the intense citrus, toast and flinty flavours at the core. The acidity is bright and mouthwatering, adding a savoury touch to the fruit. However, this is perfectly in harmony due to the ripeness at the core and creaminess of the palate. The finish is one of golden apples, freshly baked pastries and just a touch of struck match. Absolutely magnificent - quite possibly the best English wine we have ever tasted.
