A great introduction to Wiston Estate wines
“The NV Brut from Wiston has been a go-to English Sparkler for some time now… a steely, malic bouquet of dew-speckled Granny Smith apples, wet limestone and petrichor… the palate is full of tension thanks to the driving acidity… vivacious green apples intermixed with gooseberry and a touch of grapefruit.” Neal Martin
Our Brut NV combines a purity of green apple and ripe lemon flavours with a rich and complex maturity. This multi-vintage wine is a highly-scented sparkling wine with fine bubbles, lots of toasty, biscuity autolysis from long lees-aging and a long finish.
Our NV wines are a composition of many vintages blended together. The journey of this wine started in 2008 where we reserved a small amount of wine. Each year that we harvest grapes and make wine, we build up our reserve wines. This allows us to create a style consistent year on year and show a piece of Wiston history in every glass. This current iteration is made up of 70% of wine from the 2017 harvest. After bottling it is kept cool and aged on its lees in bottle for over four years in our cellars. When it is ready to be release the wine is disgorged at our winery and rested before being released.
