Wine Note

Wiston Estate Blanc de Blancs

This is exceptionally fine sparkling wine. 100% Chardonnay aged for c years on its lees. At a tasting of pretty much all the English sparkling wines available - I rated this top. Rich, toasty, creamy yet fresh. Long and complex, very high quality.
"From chalk soils on the South Downs, this is Chardonnay grown on the steepest part of the vineyard. Base wine is half in barrel, half stainless steel. Dosage is 8 g/l, disgorged in September 2019. This is linear and fine, with a powerful core of citrus fruit. Itís pristine and very linear with high acidity, but this acidity is well integrated. The fruit is so linear and pure with amazing focus. Great concentration to this wine, which is one of Englandís finest." Jamie Goode, 15th April 2020
