Wiston Brut NV is a refreshing, elegant and complete sparkling wine, with a fine complex finish that combines youthful purity of crisp green apples and ripe lemons with richer, mature characters from extended lees-aging. Made from a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier in equal parts, this beautifully balanced wine is a fantastic expression of our house style.
Used by Her Majesty The Queen in 2015 to launch P&O’s Britannia cruise liner:
“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 beautiful family-run Wiston Estate is nestled in the heart of England’s rolling South Downs in West Sussex. The Wiston Estate vineyard lies on an exceptional, south-facing chalk escarpment similar to Champagne, and planted to the classic grape varieties Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.
Employing time-honoured methods, Wiston produces sparkling wines of exceptional finesse and quality. 2014 saw the launch of their first non-vintage sparkling wine, which winemaker Dermot Sugrue has been working on since 2009 – the Wiston Estate Brut NV.
