Wiston Estate South Downs Cuvee Brut 2009
The Wiston Estate, farmed by the Goring family for over 275 years, sits on the chalky slopes of the South Downs in Sussex, famed for its white cliffs. This dry river valley closely resembles Champagne’s Côte de Blancs. The vineyards are planted with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier, and the winery’s traditional Coquard press, one of only four outside of France, enables exceptionally gentle extraction. Focused precision with fragrant notes of an English Orchard, nectarines, honey, and brioche.
