Producer Note
Dermot Sugrue is not exactly a new name in the English wine industry but he is certainly a winemaker at the top of his game. Born in Ireland in 1974, he studied Viticulture and Oenology at Plumpton Agricultural College before completing two seasons working at Chateau l'Eglise-Clinet and Chateau Leoville-Barton. In 2003 he joined Nyetimber and was appointed winemaker in 2004. Over the following years he oversaw Nyetimber's emergence as one of the world's greatest sparkling wine producers. From Nyetimber he moved to Wiston Estate in 2006 to work with the Goring Family of West Sussex. The Goring Brut is made exclusively for us by Dermot Sugrue. Vineyard
The vineyard is situated on the South Downs in West Sussex, which is above the 50th parallel and is influenced by a cool, coastal climate. The vines are grown in the chalky soils typical of the area, which are not dissimilar to those 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. Winemaking
Vinified using the Traditional Method, with the second fermentation taking place in the bottle, this sparkling wine was made using equal parts Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Pressed using a traditional Coquard basket press, the fruit for this non-vintage sparkling wine all comes from the excellent 2013 vintage, which was one of the latest harvests in England in recent years, enjoying warm dry weather right up to the beginning of November. It was matured for an average of three years on its fine lees in the cellar, before disgorging at 7g/litre. Tasting Note
