Chardonnay/Pinot Noir/Pinot Meunier Blend * 75cl * Vegan * 12% ABV * Sussex, England
Owned by the Goring family (owners of the synonymous London hotel) since 1743, Wiston Estate was converted into a 16-acre vineyard on the south-facing chalk slopes of the Sussex South Downs in 2006. The estate is run according to sustainable principles, with no herbicides sprayed on the soil. Made in the traditional Champagne method, this is a classic equal blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier. A beautiful pale pink, this captures the red berry flavours of summer, as well as the essence of oyster shells that comes from pure chalk terroir. Those in the know won’t be surprised that Dermot Sugrue, flying English winemaker extraordinaire, is behind this top quality fizz.
