Wiston Estate Cuvée 2015

Wiston Estate Cuvée 2015

Price: £35.50

Tasting Note: Refreshing and fine, with fragrant notes of an English Orchard, nectarines, honey and brioche, Wiston Estate Cuvée 2015 displays a more opulent expression of Wiston’s Cuvée style. With impressive depth, its filigree texture retains Wiston’s signature precision and elegance, that gives more than a nod to French bone structure. A beautifully focused wine with fantastic ageing potential made from a blend of 45% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay and 22% Pinot Meunier.

Blend: 45% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay, 22% Pinot Meunier

Food Pairing Suggestion: Smoked Haddock Tart, Fish Pie

Awards: Gold Medal in the WineGB Awards 2020

"Made from 45% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay and 22% Pinot Meunier and fermented in a mixture of old Burgundy barrels, it remained on its lees for three years and was treated to only 8g/l dosage.  Released in January this year, this is a pivotal wine for Wiston and I am certain that it will shock anyone who tastes it.  Drinking now, it will age gracefully for five to eight years, too.  I urge anyone who reads this note to track this wine down because I hope that you will see in this wine what I do.  It is genuinely impressive." Matthew Jukes, MatthewJukes.com 15th April 2020

"Bravo to Wiston (and all the other producers who do it) for putting the disgorgement date and dosage on the back label. Golden colour. Fine sparse bead but very tight and sharp. Very toasty nose. The barrel ageing has made a huge impact on this wine, nose and palate. It’s rich and spicy, deeply golden in flavour, grilled brioche, golden peaches, satsumas and saffron. It rolls across the tongue like trumpet and drum, silvery notes slipping through old gold, intent, piercing. A very, very sophisticated sparkling wine. Good Value Drink 2020 – 2027." Tamlyn Currin, Purple Pages of JancisRobinson.com 9th April 2020

“Enticing nose - pear, green gage, verveine creme fraiche, pastry....complex! Palate shows pastry and creamy notes – tarte tropezienne! Toasty, hints of wild strawberry, salted lemons, ginger, delicious depth and breadth. Balanced and long.” WineGB Awards 2020

"...the flavour of the Cuvée Brut 2015 is fresh, alive, sophisticated. What I love about writing about sparkling wine is trying to describe it, especially this one with a lovely balance dosage of 8g (between champagne’s brut and extra brut). Yes, there is “English Orchard, nectarines, honey and brioche” as the Wiston Estate website says of the Cuvée 2015. With 45% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay and 22% Pinot Meunier, this has a lingering crispness with a honeyed undertone. This and the Cuvée Brut NV are my go-to if you want an English sparkling wine that makes you say, “Where’s my credit card? I need more of this.” It’s a bottle you feel smart for buying and luckier to drink it." Karen Krizanovich, Civilian Global April 2020

"Intensely spicy and oaky, very full on but showing good depth of spiced red apple and cream. Richly textured and creamy." Highly Recommended, Decanter Magazine December 2019

“This 100% oak-fermented wine is an intense, bold creation with flashes of spicy butter, roasted peaches, pears and redcurrant. This honey-nut richness and oxidative breadth is coming through already here, staked down by forceful acidity and a complex, drying finish.” Tom Hewson, SixAtmospheres December 2019
