Wiston Estate Goring Brut Family Release Sussex NV

An elegant, complex English sparkling wine combining a
youthful purity of fruit with subtle toasty, nutty notes.
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 (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 vineyard is run according to a strict philosophy of sustainability, with
soil cultivation methods being used rather than synthetic preparations. The harvest
takes place manually when the grapes have reached optimum maturity levels.
Winemaking
Vinified using the Traditional Method. Made with equal parts Chardonnay, Pinot Noir
and Pinot Meunier, which were each pressed separately in whole bunches using a
traditional Coquard basket press which is unique to the UK. The juice was then
fermented entirely in stainless steel tanks. Each component of the final assemblage
wine went through malolactic fermentation and was allowed to rest on its lees prior to
bottling. The second fermentation took place in the bottle, maturing on its fine lees in
cellar for an average of three years, before disgorging at seven grams per litre.
Tasting Note
An elegant, complex English sparkling wine combining a youthful purity of fruit with
subtle toasty, nutty notes.
