With enticing notes of fragrant English orchard fruits, white chocolate, nougat, toasted hazelnuts and brioche, Wiston Estate’s Cuvée 2009 shows impressive depth and complexity, whilst retaining Wiston’s signature precision and elegance. Made from a blend of 60% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir and 10% Pinot Meunier, this wine displays a delightful creaminess on the finish and is drinking beautifully now, yet also has great ageing potential.
We are over the moon that this latest release of our signature Cuvée has received a Gold Outstanding Medal in The International Wine & Spirit Competition 2018 for a remarkable second year running (following on from our previous release, Cuvée 2013). It has also been awarded a Gold Medal in The Drinks Business Global Sparkling Masters 2018.
Selected from the chalkiest and steepest part of our vineyard, Wiston Estate Blanc de Blancs 2011 is elegant and expressive, with enticing notes of white peach, apricot, brioche and crushed oyster shells. This decadent single vineyard, single vintage, single varietal Blanc de Blancs is perfect for immediate drinking and will also age beautifully.
Comprised of 68% Pinot Noir, 22% Pinot Meunier and just 10% Chardonnay, our Wiston Estate Rosé 2014 displays exotic notes of Seville oranges, cranberries, morello cherries and sweet spice. With extraordinary complexity, there is great texture and elegance to this wine due to two-thirds of this cuvée fermented and aged in oak barrels. It will age very well but this is a wine that is already brimming with individual personality and so is excellent to drink now, especially with food.
In some people’s mind the perfectly balanced wine, made up of the three classic varieties: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier in equal parts. A refreshing, elegant and complete sparkling wine, with a fine complex finish that combines youthful purity of fruit with more mature characters from long lees-aging, this wine is an excellent way to begin a journey with Wiston.
With a blend of 96% Chardonnay and 4% Pinot Noir from Wiston Estate and the neighbouring Norbertine Priory vineyard, Wiston Rosé NV captures the red-berry flavours of summer, with an exceptional freshness that makes one go back for more.
One of our favourites, Wiston Blanc de Blancs NV is delightfully fresh with the vibrant balance of the 2014 vintage and older reserve wines from 2013 and 2009. The chardonnay in this wine strikes notes that would get Thom Yorke smiling.
