One of our favourites, the Wiston Blanc de Blancs NV is 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.
Our NV wines are a composition of many vintages blended together. The journey of this wine started in 2009 where we reserved a small amount of wine. Each year that we harvest grapes and make wine, we build up our reserve wines. This allows us to create a style consistent year on year and show a piece of Wiston history in every glass. This current iteration is made up of 80% of wine from 2018.
We press whole bunches of grapes through our Coquard basket press, (as used in Champagne), before fermenting in stainless steel and 500 litres oak barrels from Burgundy, then resting on its lees ahead of bottling. After bottling, it is was kept cool and capped (sur lattes) for over two years before being disgorged at a low dosage in Spring 2021.
