English sparkling wine producer Nyetimber has released a Blanc de Blancs from the 2009 vintage.

The 100% Chardonnay wine is made from grapes sourced only from Nyetimber's vineyards. The producer is based in South East England, with 152ha under vine. 

"We only produce a Blanc de Blancs using fruit from the finest years, and the 2009 is no exception," said Cherie Spriggs, Nyetimber's head winemaker. "The 2009 vintage marks a new era in how our Blanc de Blancs is crafted. As well as making the decision to reintroduce malolactic fermentation, I've fermented a small portion of the wine in new oak barrels, which gives an added touch of complexity. We have also included Chardonnay from areas of our vineyards which we haven't used before for our Blanc de Blancs."

According to local media reports, Nyetimber purchased a 108-acre golf course earlier this year.
