Wiston Estate’s Cuvée Brut 2013 has been awarded the The Platinum Medal for Best UK Sparkling Wine 2017 by the Decanter World Wine Awards. One month later this Cuvée won the highest accolade in another of the wine-world’s most respected annual competitions, The International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC), having been awarded the English Sparkling Wine Trophy 2017.
What is most remarkable about Wiston claiming the top spot in each competition is the record-breaking number of entrants – both Decanter and the IWSC had more than 130 English & Welsh sparkling wines entered in each.
“Rich and creamy style, with lovely savoury notes from development. Composed and elegant with complex notes of brioche fruit and a long finish, delightful!” – IWSC 2017 Tasting Panel
“From the chalky soils of the South Downs, this is a lovely wine with ripe citrus and pear fruit with some appley notes. The brisk acidity is countered by a hint of sweetness on the finish. Lemony and linear, this is really serious.” - Jamie Goode, Sunday Express June 2017
