Wiston use no herbicides on their soil and still utilise the traditional Coquard press, one of only four outside of France and the only one of its kind in the UK. With a large surface area and exceptionally gentle pressing, the Coquard enables extraction of the very highest quality juice and combined with Wiston's minimum intervention winemaking, the end product best reflects its vineyard origin and the characteristics of the vintage. Now led by famous winemaker Dermot Sugrue, Wiston are one of the frontrunners in the English sparkling wine industry.
Cellar Master: Dermot Sugrue
Winery Location: South Downs | West Sussex, England
Annual Production (bottles): Undisclosed
Weather: Overall 2013 produced an average sized yield, it was due to be very high but as the year went on this was looking less likely. Following a long cold winter, the bud burst was delayed due to some frosts however the summer months were bright and sunny giving ideal conditions for the grapes to grow and mature. Overall the harvest took slightly longer than normal around 10 days.
Grape Varieties: 47% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Meunier
Ageing: 3 years on the lees
Dosage: 6 g/l
Drink: Now to 2022
Tasting Note: On the nose, brioche aromas combine with toasted hazelnuts and that distinctive toasty note from barrel fermentation. The palate has loads of dried citrus fruits and beautiful lemon concentration with hints of tropical fruits. Given time in the glass, lovely toasty richness suggesting French patisserie custard and pastry flavours start to come through. Even when young this is very easy to drink, but expect this to age elegantly and continue to develop an even fuller palate for many years to come.

Wiston Estate History
The Wiston Estate has been owned and managed by the Goring family since 1743. Its 6,000 acres straddle the chalky slopes of the South Downs. The vineyards planted in 2006 are situated on the south-facing chalk slopes of the South Downs and 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 des Blancs in Champagne.
There are no herbicides sprayed on the soil and Wiston use the traditional Coquard press, one of only four outside of France and 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 origin.
The bottle 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 an eagle carrying the ribbon of grapes and flowers.
