Description & Technical Information
-
Juice obtained from the three grape varieties used in the Wiston Estate Rosé blend was fermented separately in a mixture of old Burgundy oak barrels with specially selected yeasts. The wines were then rested on their lees for several months until spring. Due to the nature of the harvest, the decision was then taken to block malolactic fermentation. Exquisitely beautiful, soft and fine: this is quite possibly the best English sparkling wine ever made.

Weather: In 2011, buds started swelling in early April, almost three weeks earlier than in 2010. May was dry with below-average rainfall. The months of July and August were mediocre with below-average temperatures and sunshine. However, a mini-heatwave in late-September and October saw grape growers record the highest sugar levels for many years in all varieties. As such, 2011 finished as one of the best years for English grapes in living memory.

News Article: Wiston Estate Rosé 2011 placed sixth in our comprehensive rosé blind tasting in February 2017. Read the full write-up here.

Ageing: 2 years on the lees
Disgorged: August 2013

Tasting Note: Light pink colour and the initial impression is very ripe summer fruits, peaches and raspberry character. On the palate, lots of raspberry and hints of rhubarb flavours shine through. With quite high acidity, this is very drinkable.

Wiston Estate Rosé 2011 is presented in an individual branded gift box (as shown in the picture on the left).

Expert Reviews
94/100
Wine Enthusiast
“Both the fruit and the aromatic foliage of wild raspberries rise first from the glass. They are followed by richer, delicious strawberry and cream notes, with hints of almond patisserie and strawberry shortcake. The palate is resonant with yeasty, rounded autolytic notes that frame the wonderfully wilful English hedgerow character. The mousse is lively but soft and the finish long and echoing.”

Decanter
“**Gold Medal Decanter World Wine Awards** Delicious fruit cocktail with strawberries and red fruits to the fore and hints of brioche. A redcurrant palate with soft fizz. Rich, refined, very appealing and attractive style. Hugely drinkable with long acid-toned finish backed up by just the right amount of sweetness. ”
