A different emphasis here compared to the legendary Trophy winning 2011 vintage, the Wiston Estate Rosé 2014 is comprised of 68% Pinot Noir, 22% Pinot Meunier and just 10% Chardonnay. Two-thirds of this cuvée was fermented and aged in oak barrels, giving texture and elegance to this fruit-forward wine, which displays exotic, spicy characters and extraordinary complexity.
Will age very well but excellent to drink now, a wine brimming with individual personality.
“Exceptional English fizz. Winemaker Dermot Sugrue (who I’m dubbing ‘The Wiston Piston’) here crafts the one to win all hearts with.” Olly Smith, Event Magazine
“Evocative redcurrant notes play on the nose. They become more intense on the palate where lively fizz lets them mix with lemon and pink grapefruit zestiness. This wine is lively and fresh but the exuberant surface is supported by a firm and taut structure of subtle autolysis that provides the perfect backdrop for all the tart, refreshing berry fruit. It offers freshness, joy and verve in one tidy, neat package. Lovely now, it will develop.” Anne Krebiehl MW, Wine Enthusiast
