Wiston Brut NV is a refreshing, elegant and complete sparkling wine, with a fine complex finish that combines youthful purity of crisp green apples and ripe lemons with richer, mature characters from extended lees-aging. Made from a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier in equal parts, this beautifully balanced wine is a fantastic expression of the Wiston house style.
Grapes: 34% Chardonnay, 33% Pinot Noir, 33% Pinot Meunier
Region: South Downs, West Sussex.
Viticulture and Winemaking: The Winston Estate Vineyard is in a natural sun trap and protected from wind and planted on an ancient chalk seam. The vines are carefully tended and picked by hand.
Grape varieties are pressed separately in whole bunches using a gentle, traditional Coquard basket press. The current Brut NV is largely from grapes harvested in 2014 with reserves from 2009 and 2013. Alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks, followed by malolactic fermentation and a rest on its lees prior to bottling in 2015. Secondary fermentation in bottle, then maturation for 3.5 years on its lees. Riddled and disgorged in the autumn of 2018 with a dosage of 8g/L.
