With enticing notes of fragrant English orchard fruits, nectarines, honey, toasted hazelnuts and brioche, this latest release of their vintage Cuvée has impressive depth and complexity, retaining our cuvée’s signature precision and elegance. Displaying a delightful creaminess on the finish, this wine is drinking beautifully now, yet also has superb ageing potential.
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.
FROM THE PRESS
“I recently enjoyed a bottle with friends and it blew my mind. Lovely level of toastiness, plenty of zingy thrills. Outstandingly sumptuous, lingering elegance of flavours. Seriously good value.”Olly Smith, The Daily Mail
