The Blanc de Blancs 2015 is exquisite and like a coiled spring. It will develop over the next year or two, but will continue to develop for many more.
It follows on from the 2011 which was rated 'Best in Show' in Decanter Awards. We opened a 2011 for friends at the weekend at they said it was the best sparkling wine they've ever drunk.
FROM THE PRESS
“This has a fantastic bouquet of bewitching scents of lime, green apple, honeysuckle and slithers of tinned peach, all beautifully defined. The palate does not disappoint, delivering exquisite balance, wonderful focus and a touch of mineralité toward the harmonious finish. Now this is how you make a great Blanc de Blancs.”Drink 2020 - 2035 Neal Martin, Vinous.com
“Rich and broad and voluptuous. Like the creamiest Greek yogurt folded through with the malty, fudgey depth of buckwheat honey. A brush of butterscotch, the savoury nuttiness of toasted buckwheat, but the acidity flashes through this wine with diamond-cut dominance so that, despite the richness, it is fiercely racy. Incredible persistence. Wiston is making very ambitious, serious sparkling wines. Drink 2020 – 2027.”Tamlyn Currin, Purple Pages, JancisRobinson.com
“The fruit is so linear and pure with amazing focus. Great concentration to this wine, which is one of England’s finest.”Jamie Goode, WineAnorak.com 15th April 2020
