Wiston Estate Cuvée Traditional 2010 English Sparkling Wine

The Wiston Estate has been owned and managed by the Goring family since 1743. Its 6000 acres straddle the chalky slopes of the South Downs. The Vineyard planted in 2006 are situated on the South facing chalk slopes of the South Downs, the three traditional varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier are sited on a peri-glacial dry river valley on the Upper Cretaceous Chalk, which closely resembles the physical and chemical composition of the world renowned Côte de Blancs in Champagne.

There are no herbicides sprayed on the soil and Wiston uses the traditional Coquard press, one of only four outside of France and is unique to the UK. Its large surface area and exceptionally gentle pressing enables extraction of the very highest quality, so they can maximise the purity of the juice, followed by minimum intervention in the winemaking process so the wine can best reflect its vineyard’s origin.

The label was inspired by the story of two families coming together. It combines the colour and intensity of Pip's South African nature with Harry's family heritage and English design. The intricate detail replicates the plasterwork of the Great Hall at Wiston House, commissioned by Sir Charles Goring in the mid-18th century, with the eagle carrying the ribbon of grapes and flowers.

This wine has been aging in Wiston's cellars for 3 years, fermented in 5-6 year old Puligny-Montrachet barrels, giving it the ability to gain character over time. The classic champagne varieties and a very low dosage at disgorging, enable the clarity of the fruit to shine through. On the nose, brioche aromas combine with flowers and toasted hazelnuts and that distinctive toasty note from barrel fermentation. The palate has loads of dried citrus fruits, beautiful lemon concentration with hints of tropical fruits and orange and that lovely toasty richness suggesting French patisserie custard and pastry notes. Expect to age very elegantly and continue to develop and even fuller palate for many year to come, though even now when young it is very easy to drink.

Grape Varieties: 33% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir, 22% Pinot Meunier
Dosage: 6 g/L
Disgorged: August 2015

“Much rounder and fuller than the NV brut, with a very prominent acidity thanks to very low dosage. This would be austere if it wasn't for the luscious fruit and generous complexity. Stylised and avant-garde - but delicious.”

“A cuvée of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay made on the South Downs by Irish winemaker, Dermot Sugrue, this is a complex, toasty, savoury fizz with fine bubbles, lots of yeasty, bready autolysis and a bone dry, tapering finish. A winery that deserves to be every bit as famous as Nyetimber, Camel Valley and Ridgeview. ”
