One of the best known brands in the English wine industry, Nyetimber, based near Pulborough, West Sussex, have this week launched a whole new re-branding campaign. Following over 20 years of using the same labelling and branding, Nyetimber’s owner Eric Hereema, has decided to modernise and refresh the brand.
With their new branding (above), which breathes new life into an already hugely popular range of wines, Nyetimber are set to take 2012 by storm. And what a year to do so with the Queen’s Jubilee and the London Olympics. This new label moves away from the old world, classic, Champagne house-style branding and brings an almost 1930s Art Deco, English-ness into the fore.
The new labels subtly denote the different blends with different colour neck collars (Blanc de Blancs = silver; Classic Cuvée = blue; and Rosé = pink), and the Rosé also has a pink foil. Here at Sparkling English Wine, we’re really liking the new labels: Clean, precise, simple and modern. We’d love to know what you think.
With over 450 acres of vineyard, Nyetimber are by far the biggest producer in England, and as such have built a great reputation for consistently producing some of the top wines in the country. We are pleased to have a wide range of Nyetimber wines from as far back as the 1998 Blanc de Blancs up until the Rosé 2007. Over the years, Nyetimber have scooped all manner of awards including the IWSC “Best Worldwide Sparkling Wine” and the prestigious “Champion of Worldwide Sparkling Wines” at the Bollicine Del Mondo, Italian world sparkling wine competition in 2009.
With winemaking team Cherie Spriggs and Brad Greatrix now at Nyetimber over 5 years, their expertise and skill is showing in the wines that have been made under their management, with the 2007 Rosé being the first wine released made from start to finish by the the duo. The imminent release of the 2008 Rosé looks to be reaching the high standards expected by followers of the industry-leading vineyard. The new labelling is an extension of this great brand, its focus on the future and its longevity.
