This award-winning wine was highly praised in 2017 and has now been released in a limited number of magnums. It’s one of the most exciting flavours of the year. Made from 47 per cent Pinot Noir, 33 per cent Chardonnay and 20 per cent Pinot Meunier, use it to toast the New Year in style.Matthew Jukes, The Daily Mail (Dec 2020)
Made by talented Dermot Sugrue, whose wines get better and better, using grapes grown on the South Downs, this white sparkling wine is a pinot noir-based blend (47%) with chardonnay (33%) and pinot meunier (20%). Like all Sugrue’s wines it has taut definition and a lively tang but there are also some lovely, warmer, honeyed notes, too.”Victoria Moore, The Daily Telegraph (Feb 2018)
This is huge news - a future ICON for English fizz. Rich, poised, electrifying.Olly Smith, The Mail on Sunday (Nov 2017)
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.
