Dermot Sugrue has chosen to release this 2009 completely out of vintage 'sequence' to ensure it was at its best for us to enjoy. He is certainly a maverick but when you taste this you see it is another great, decision. The vintage cuvée from Wiston is a true delight. Now showing real class - delicious toasty notes are well blended with the deep fruit and lovely weight of spiced pear and ripe, softish apple. IT may not be rich but there is a very satisfying feel and pleasing intensity. Made up with 60% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir, 10% Pinot Meunier - the length and balance here are seriously impressive - and this 10 year old release is a complete bargains for hunters of intense, balanced and more structured sparkling wines. A great 'Vintage' release. L&S (Apr 2019)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Softly scented freshness has hints of lemon zest and ripe yellow apple. On the palate, these flavors unfold and are joined by a well of creamy depth that lends another dimension to freshness and fruit. This echoes with richness and aromatic complexity: stone, earth, yeast and citrus create layers of flavor and expression. Savor this, and let it happen to you. The finish is seemingly endless. Lovely now, certain to develop. (Anna Krebiehl MW) Drinking range: 2018 - 2028The Wine Enthusiast www.winemag.com(Oct 2018)

Gold Trophy - 'Outstanding' Award 2018. Lovely well integrated and persistent creamy mousse. Excellent aromas of brioche and hazelnut nose showing lovely combination of autolysis and bottle age. Palate has an impressive weight of fruit. Incredibly balanced structure leading to an endless finish, and will continue to age.International Wine & Spirit Competition(May 2018)

Wiston Estate

The beautiful family-run Wiston Estate is nestled in the heart of England’s rolling South Downs in West Sussex. The 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.

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 conviction that the estate held the potential to grow high quality grapes. The 16-acre vineyard, planted in 2006, was the fruit of her dream and tenacity. Wiston Estate is a family venture, small in scale, impressive in aspiration and unrelenting in pursuit of quality. Under the aegis of award-winning winemaker Dermot Sugrue, the tight-knit team spares no effort in the vineyard or winery.

As part of a larger agricultural estate with the utmost respect for nature, Wiston’s vineyard is run according to a strict philosophy of sustainability. The team’s pioneering efforts include the installation of solar panels at the winery as a source of renewable energy. Similarly their use of a Boisselet cultivator allows them to manage root and weed growth by returning them gently to the soil, rather than resorting to ‘quick fix’ chemical herbicides and synthetic fertilisers.

The vineyard is planted on an escarpment of pure chalk, similar to the renowned 'Côte des Blancs' in Champagne. Wiston Estate’s vintage wines are picked by hand and gently pressed in England’s only traditional Coquard press, one of the few outside France’s Champagne region. The tiny yields (15 hl per hectare) are critical to Wiston Estate’s purity, focus and elegance, and their aspiration to create a new benchmark for English sparkling wine.
