Wiston Estate Brut
This is a complex, toasty, savoury fizz with fine bubbles, lots of yeasty, bready autolysis and a bone dry, tapering finish.
- West Sussex, United Kingdom
Wiston is one of the UK’s best producers and their sparklers genuinely give champagne a run for their money (and I write that as a person that criticized the category for many years). This equal blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay was on form, perhaps even better than the bottle I tasted last year, brimming over with Granny Smith apples and a welcome twist of bitter lemon on the finish.” Neal Martin for Vinous (May-2018)
“A cuvée of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay made on the South Downs by Irish winemaker, Dermot Sugrue, this is a complex, toasty, savoury fizz with fine bubbles, lots of yeasty, bready autolysis and a bone dry, tapering finish.” Tim Atkin MW, TimAtkin.com
“Tremendous zingy acidity proudly cutting through the restrained but soothing, creamy yeastiness. Long, cream and apples finish. Very English style.” International Wine Challenge 2017: Gold “Another great addition to the English fizz stable."
Richard Hemming Wiston Estate has been owned and managed by the Goring family since 1743, and owners Harry and Pip have planted grapes on the fields since 2008. Its 6,000 acres straddle the chalky slopes of the South Downs and the flat clay soils of the Weald. The traditional Coquard press at Wiston is one of only four outside of France and is unique to the UK. Its large surface area and exceptionally gentle pressing enables extraction of the very highest quality. The estate has won numerouos awards for their sparkling wines and were dubbed ‘Winery of the Year’ at the WineGB Awards in 2018 (the most important competition for the English and Welsh Wine Industry.) Winemaker Dermot Sugrue's (previously at Chateau l’Eglise-Clinet, Pomerol, Leoville-Barton and Nyetimber) Brut is a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier in equal parts. It's a refreshing, elegant and complete sparkling wine - an excellent introduction to Wiston.
