This is a fruit forward wine which displays exotic, spicy characters and extraordinary complexity. There is great texture and elegance to this wine due to its fermentation and ageing in oak barrels. It will age very well but this is a wine that is already brimming with individual personality and so is excellent to drink now.
“Exceptional English fizz. Winemaker Dermot Sugrue (who I’m dubbing ‘The Wiston Piston’) here crafts the one to win all hearts with.” ‘Wine of the Week’ Olly Smith, Event Magazine 11th February 2018
“One of my all-time favourite English Sparkling Wines, it doesn’t get much better than this. There’s ripe notes of peaches, raspberries and a dollop of cream that make me want to re-visit time and time again.” Adrian Smith, The Independent February 2018
“A wine clearly at ease with itself, displaying beautiful balance and a vinous nose, delicate and understated. The finish is surprisingly long, longer than the mid-palate suggests, displaying gentle fruit, elegance and finesse.” Richard Bampfield MW
“Evocative redcurrant notes play on the nose. They become more intense on the palate where lively fizz lets them mix with lemon and pink grapefruit zestiness. This wine is lively and fresh but the exuberant surface is supported by a firm and taut structure of subtle autolysis that provides the perfect backdrop for all the tart, refreshing berry fruit. It offers freshness, joy and verve in one tidy, neat package. Lovely now, it will develop.” Anne Krebiehl MW, Wine Enthusiast
