Wiston Estate Goring Rose Family Release Sussex NV

A supremely elegant rosé, creamy with fragrant notes of
summer berries and a vibrant, refreshing finish.
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 the Wiston Estate Vineyard and Storrington Priory Vineyard, which
are situated on the South Downs in West Sussex. Situated above the 50th parallel, they
are influenced by a cool, coastal climate. The cool winters, moderate rainfall and
temperate summers, combined with cooling sea breezes; allow the grapes to ripen
slowly while retaining natural acidity and freshness. The soils are dominated by South
Downs chalk, which 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 (VSP) method, with
Guyot pruning. The vines are tended by hand, with careful canopy management
ensuring maximum sunlight exposure in this capricious climate. The Wiston Estate
Vineyard believes in sustainable viticulture in order to optimise health and balance in
the vineyard. The harvest takes place manually.
Winemaking
The grape varieties were pressed separately in whole bunches using a traditional,
gentle Coquard basket press – as used in the Champagne region and unique to the
UK - to preserve the delicate fruit flavours and aromas. The Pinot Noir component (the
red wine which was added at dosage) was crushed and destemmed, and after a
brief cold soak underwent a quick fermented on its skins to avoid tannins, but achieve
good colour and fruit intensity. The pressed juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks.
Each component went through malolactic conversion and the young wine rested on its
lees for nine month, which imparted complexity and structure. After blending, cold
stabilisation and bottling, the wine underwent a slow secondary fermentation in bottle.
It was kept sur latte, on its side under crown cap at cool temperatures of 9 to 11°C for
four and a half years, where it developed complex flavours and textural finesse through
the process of autolysis. To complete the natural poise and balance a dosage of 10
grams per litre completed the wine.
Tasting Note
Fragrant notes of rhubarb, raspberry, strawberry, redcurrant, wild roses and lemon zest
are underpinned by delicate hints of crushed oyster shell. A supremely elegant rosé
with a core of tangy acidity and a wonderfully vibrant finish.
