The Cuvee Chérie is English wine producer, Nyetimber’s, contribution to the sweeter side of life and is named after the Head Winemaker, Cherie Spriggs. Nyetimber has been consistently recognised as one of England’s best wine producers, an acclaim that is well deserved.
The chardonnay fruit has a light waft of honeyed floral perfume that combines with the ‘true to varietal’ apple and lemon. The Cuvee Cherie has some creamy softness to its fruity curves. While it starts as a soft, sweet and lush mouthful, it finishes with a clean citrus crispness.
It is a wine that proves to be in good company with some salty/spicy dishes, including delicate, bitesize canapes.
