Wiston Estate is recognised by many as England’s finest vineyard, with chalk soils like the best Grand Cru sites in Champagne. Wiston have the only ‘Coquard’ wooden Champagne press in England, releasing only the very best juice, which is fed by gravity into old white Burgundy barrels from Montrachet, resting until it’s perfectly mature and ready for the second fermentation.
For anyone still unconvinced about the elegance, finesse and purity of English sparkling, Wiston Cuvée 2013 is the wine to banish your doubts. It has just been awarded ‘Best English Sparkling Wine’ coming first of over 100 wines in blind tastings. Wiston Estate was also awarded ‘English Winery of the Year’ at the GB Wine Awards. Lemon, creamy peach, white flowers and sweet pastry notes are at the fore. It’s supremely elegant, and texturally it’s on a different level from most other English sparkling wines.
