The Wiston Estate Library Collection represents a series of limited-edition releases from the Wiston cellars which celebrate the wines’ ability to age. Since the release of their first Cuvée from the 2008 vintage they have held back small parcels from the best vintages to further mature and develop. This is a series of unique wines which show the potential for quality and age-ability that English Sparkling Wine can achieve.The first release is the Blanc de Blancs 2010.

The grapes for this wine came from the steepest slopes of Findon Park Vineyard at the easternend of the plot.They have the shallowest topsoil and the highest concentration of chalk in the soils.The 2010 growing season was exceptional. Conditions were perfect for flowering, resulting in excellent fruit set.The growing season was long, allowing for excellent ripeness of fruit, which thanks to very low disease pressure, came into the winery in a healthy and clean condition.We picked the fruit from the middle to the end October.

Due to the ideal ripeness of the fruit, malolactic fermentation was blocked leaving the wine with natural malic ‘energy’.This not only brought verve and focus to the final blend but also gives the wine fantastic ageing potential. The wine did not need to be cold stabilised, filtered or fined; it settled naturally before yeast and sugar were added (liqueur de tirage) for the secondary fermentation in bottle. Bottling took place in July 2011 and disgorged in November 2018, giving the wine 7.5 years on lees and more than 3 years on cork.
