Tasting Notes

The Blanc de Blancs 2015 is absolutely exquisite and like a coiled spring. It will develop over the next year or two, and will continue to develop for many more. Awarded the trophy for best Blanc de Blancs in Wine GB's 2021 awards, you won't find a better example in the UK. Buy now, taste, but do consider cellaring too. Your patience will be rewarded!  

More Info

With its Blanc de Noirs 2010 being named Supreme Champion at the inaugural Wine GB Awards, and its Cuvée 2013 being named the UK’s Best Sparkling Wine in the Decanter World Wine Awards 2017, AND winning the English Sparkling Wine Trophy in the International Wines and Spirits Challenge 2017, life is good for Wiston Estate. It’s a testament to the combined efforts and expertise of estate managers Richard and Kirsty Goring, and winemaker Dermot Sugrue, and confirms Wiston as a genuine trailblazer of quality English sparkling wine. Taking inspiration from his previous work in Champagne, Dermot prefers to use old Jacques Prieur Burgundy barrels for fermentation and ageing of Wiston’s vintage wines and his approach to winemaking is all about patience – as such Wiston sparkling wines will only ever be released once they have reached pitch-perfect readiness. Their NV wines are unbeatable examples of just good English sparkling can be.  

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
