A great introduction to Wiston Estate wines

Named Best Sparkling in the Independent English Wine Awards 2019 and before that a gold award in the 2017 International Wine Challenge, our house style is critics’ ‘go-to’ English sparkling wine.

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 2017.

We press whole bunches of grapes through our Coquard basket press (as used in Champagne) before fermenting in stainless steel and resting on its lees ahead of bottling. After bottling it is kept cool and capped sur lattes for over three years before being disgorged and a low dosage in Spring 2021.
