Sparkling wine producer Nyetimber, based in Pulborough, West Sussex, has released this statement after skipping this year's harvest due to the unusually poor weather conditions.
The decision to not make wine from 2012 is a difficult one, not just for me but for our whole team. However, we all know that maintaining quality is paramount.
"My first obligation as the winemaker is to ensure the quality of Nyetimber’s wines, and we have collectively come to the decision that the grapes from 2012 cannot deliver the standards we have achieved in the past and will again in the future.”
