“Time spent on lees after secondary fermentation pays huge dividends for English sparkling wine, endowed as it always is with high natural levels of acidity. That’s a lesson triumphantly proved by this 2011 Blanc de Blancs, with its soft mousse, lifted, almost floral aromas and deft weave of apple, tangerine and pear fruits rippled through with yeasty, bready richness. Its concentration, poise and length are impressive and position the wine well against the stiffest competition.  It’s vibrant and giving now, but will hold well if stored correctly and given still more time over the next decade.

“Very refined with roasted nut aromas and lovely minerality. Beautiful creamy character. Stylish, exciting, accomplished.” Susie Barrie MW, Decanter Magazine September 2019
 
“New release! The stuff of legends – premium joy with outrageous quality. The gift that keeps on giving – quench your very soul!” Olly Smith, Three Wine Men May 2019
 
“[…] One to look out for is 2011 Blanc de Blancs.  I tasted a pre-release sample and it looked awesome with thrilling balance, lip-smacking richness and masses of breeding.”
Matthew Jukes, The Daily Mail Weekend Magazine March 2018

“I tried this wine pre-release a couple of years back and proclaimed that it might just be even better than the brilliant Wiston Blanc de Blancs 2010. After a long wait, the new vintage has finally arrived, shrouded in the usual sense of elegance and mystery that the distinctive Wiston black glass bottle exudes.

It's a lively pour, with a similarly exuberant nose of baked apple, apricot, hints of brioche and honeyed pastry as well as a light dusting of minerality.

To taste, this is unmistakably Dermot Sugrue. Wiston's endearing winemaker has a penchant for driving, striking acidity, resulting in wines with wonderful poise and tension.
This Blanc de Blancs 2011 is a classic example of this, with intense, zingy citrus and crunchy green apple, leading to ripe apricot and creamy lemon curd textures. The finish is seasoned with toasted hazelnuts and mineral tones, rounding off a thoroughly captivating English sparkling experience.”

John Mobbs, Great British Wine 30th March 2019
