Producer Note
Nestled in the heart of England’s rolling South Downs in West Sussex, the Goring Family
has owned the Wiston Estate since 1743. The Goring Brut, Rosé and Blanc de Blancs
are made exclusively for us and take their name from the Goring family. This exquisite
trio of English sparkling wines showcase the best of English terroir and offer exceptional
value for money.
Vineyard
The fruit comes from two vineyards situated on the South Downs in West Sussex, which
are above the 50th parallel and are influenced by a cool, coastal climate. The cool
winters, moderate rainfall and temperate summers, combined with cooling sea breezes
encourage the grapes to ripen slowly, retaining the natural acidity crucial for
producing freshness in high quality sparkling wine. The vines are grown on a chalk
escarpment, which is not dissimilar to the soils found in the vineyards of the Côtes de
Blancs in Champagne. These chalky soils provide excellent drainage for the vines, as
well as imparting great elegance and finesse to the wines. The vines are planted at a
density of 4,000 vines per hectare and are trained according to the Vertical Shoot
Positioning method, with Guyot pruning. The vines are tended by hand, with careful
canopy management ensuring maximum sunlight exposure in this capricious climate.
The Wiston vineyard is run according to a strict philosophy of sustainability. Manually
harvested at optimum maturity.
Winemaking
The grapes were pressed in whole bunches using a traditional, gentle Coquard basket
press in order to preserve the delicate fruit flavours and aromas in the juice. Vinified
using the traditional method, the juice was fermented entirely in stainless steel tanks
with selected yeasts. Each component of the final assemblage wine went through
malolactic fermentation and was allowed to rest on its lees for nine months imparting
structure and complexity. After blending, cold stabilisation and bottling, the wine
underwent a slow secondary fermentation. It was then kept on its side, under crown
cap at cool temperatures of 9 to 11°C for almost three years on its fine lees, while it
matured and took on flavour and structure through the process of autolysis. To preserve
the natural poise and balance a dosage of 9g/l was added.
