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.
“A cuvée of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay made on the South Downs by Irish winemaker, Dermot Sugrue, this is a complex, toasty, savoury fizz with fine bubbles, lots of yeasty, bready autolysis and a bone dry, tapering finish.” Tim Atkin MW, TimAtkin.com
“Tremendous zingy acidity proudly cutting through the restrained but soothing, creamy yeastiness. Long, cream and apples finish. Very English style.” International Wine Challenge 2017
“Cream, crisp apple and baked toast – loads of flavour here, and seriously good value as a consequence. There’s an almost nutty sort of finish – really very complex and interesting. Very good.” Richard Hemming MW, Purple Pages of JancisRobinson.com
