We are continuously impressed with every release from Wiston Estate, with this being one of their finest releases to date. Selected from the chalkiest and steepest parcels of vines, this shows golden amber in the glass with pin point mousse. This is fantastically expressive with complex notes of tangerine, honeydew melon, honeysuckle and brioche, finishing long and harmonious.
“Wiston’s 2015 Blanc de Blancs is one of the finest English sparkling wines that I have encountered… to date. It was picked from October 22 to November 3 after a warm, dry October, the yield 15hl/ha, 50% fermented in stainless steel and 50% in old Burgundy barrels and aged on the lees for nine months. Dosage is 8g/L. This has a fantastic bouquet of bewitching scents of lime, green apple, honeysuckle and slithers of tinned peach, all beautifully defined. The palate does not disappoint, delivering exquisite balance, wonderful focus and a touch of mineralité toward the harmonious finish. Now this is how you make a great Blanc de Blancs.” – Neal Martin, Vinous.com
