PRODUCER: 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
TASTING NOTES: With old reserve wines of Chardonnay, blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, grown on chalk soils in Sussex, it's made like high quality Champagne. There's a beautiful lift and purity on the with good depth and lovely blackcurrant notes and softness. From the excellent 8 hectare Wiston vineyard grown on chalk in Sussex, like the best Champagnes.
