Wiston Estate Cuvée is a sophisticated British wine, masterfully crafted from Sussex's vineyards. Encompassing a striking blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier grapes, it exudes a vibrant allure. With each sip, enjoy a symphony of meticulous flavours - ripened apple compote, rich brioche, and zesty lemon. Surrounded by elegant minerality and well-structured acidity, this cuvée's layered complexity is a testament to exceptional winemaking. Revel in its rhythmic bubbles and enduring finish, hallmarks of its traditional method production. A toast to Wiston Estate Cuvée, a truly exquisite addition to any dignified celebration.
We have released the slow-maturing 2016 Cuvée following the more forward 2017 vintage to allow it to show its full potential. Now drinking beautifully with enticing notes of honeyed citrus, toasted almonds and brioche, the 2016 Cuvée has impressive depth and complexity, with that signature precision and elegance in spades. Displaying a delightful creaminess on the finish, it's delicious now, yet will also mature beautifully for a decade or more in the cellar.
