Tasting Notes

Wiston was recently named 'Winery of the Year' and is one of the most awarded wineries in blind tastings. "The NV Brut from Wiston has been a go-to English sparkler for some time now. The bunches are pressed using a traditional Coquard basket press, and this blend comprises mainly the 2014 vintage (40%) with a perpetual solera reserve from vintages 2008 to 2013. It has a steely, malic bouquet of dew-speckled Granny Smith apples, wet limestone and a touch of petrichor. It is almost like a Blanc de Blancs, reserved yet engaging. The palate is full of tension thanks to the driving acidity, though it is in no way a shrill sparkling wine. Excellent." Neal Martin, Vinous

FROM THE PRESS

“I selected Wiston Estate to launch Britannia thanks to its impeccable quality and for its poise between modernity and tradition. Wiston stands for passion and pride as a technically masterful English sparkling wine producer since 2006 with heritage as a farming estate stretching back to 1743. But the main reason is because its bubbly is irresistibly delicious!”
Olly Smith
“The NV Brut from Wiston has been a go-to English sparkler for some time now. The bunches are pressed using a traditional Coquard basket press, and this blend comprises mainly the 2014 vintage augmented by reserves from 2009 and 2013. It has a steely, malic bouquet of dew-speckled Granny Smith apples, wet limestone and a touch of petrichor. It is almost like a Blanc de Blancs, reserved yet engaging. The palate is full of tension thanks to the driving acidity, though it is in no way a shrill sparkling wine. It is just sharp, with vivacious green apples intermixed with gooseberry and a touch of grapefruit on the finish. Excellent.”
Neal Martin, Vinous
