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.
Selected from the chalkiest and steepest part of Wiston’s vineyard, Wiston Estate Blanc de Blancs 2015 is elegant and complex, with notes of tangerine, honeydew melon, honeysuckle and brioche. Aged in 50% mature Burgundy oak barrels and 50% stainless steel, this single vineyard, single vintage, single varietal Blanc de Blancs is perfect for immediate drinking and will also cellar beautifully.
"Rich and broad and voluptuous. Like the creamiest Greek yogurt folded through with the malty, fudgey depth of buckwheat honey. A brush of butterscotch, the savoury nuttiness of toasted buckwheat, but the acidity flashes through this wine with diamond-cut dominance so that, despite the richness, it is fiercely racy. Incredible persistence. Wiston is making very ambitious, serious sparkling wines. (TC)" 17.5+ pts, Jancis Robinson
