Delightfully fresh with vibrant acidity and impeccable balance. Crisp green apple and delicate notes of kumquat are leading the way with flinty minerality. The wine finishes soft, crisp and clean. Critics said this wine is made to sip by the sea with a huge plate of freshly-shucked oysters and yet also is an exceptional wine for all occasions.
Nestled in the heart of England’s rolling South Downs in West Sussex, the beautiful Wiston Estate has been in the hands of the Goring family since 1743 and is presided over today by Harry and Pip Goring. The estate is managed by their son Richard and both he and his wife, Kirsty, are now involved in the day to day running of the vineyard and winery.
It was Pip’s long-held belief that the estate held the potential to grow high quality grapes and in 2006 her dream came to fruition when Wiston’s 6.5ha vineyard was planted on a south/south-east-facing escarpment of pure chalk, like the renowned Côte des Blancs in Champagne. Under the guidance of winemaker Dermot Sugrue with a strict philosophy of sustainability, the tight-knit team produces award-winning sparkling wines of exceptional purity and finesse from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.
