Wiston Estate Rosé NV

£29.50

TASTING NOTES  Wiston Rosé NV captures the essence of summer, with fragrant notes of rhubarb, raspberry, strawberry, redcurrant, wild roses, lemon zest and a touch of sherbet on the finish. Underlying all of this is a backbone of crushed oyster shells, which reflects the pure chalk terroir where the vines are grown. It is a superbly elegant English Sparkling wine with tiny, persistent bubbles and a refreshing acidity that makes one go back for more.

WISTON ROSÉ NV (Non-Vintage)

 

 

What does Wiston have to say?

"Our Rosé NV bursts with aromatic notes of rhubarb, raspberry, strawberry, redcurrant as well as wild roses, lemon zest, and a touch of sherbet on the finish. It is a superbly elegant English sparkling wine with tiny, persistent bubbles and a refreshing acidity that calls you back for more."

"Our NV wines are a composition of many vintages blended together. The journey of this wine started in 2009 where we reserved a small amount of wine. Each year that we harvest grapes and make wine, we build up our reserve wines. This allows us to create a style consistent year on year and show a piece of Wiston history in every glass. This current iteration is made up of 10% of wine from 2018 and includes 15% red wine in the blend to impart a lovely pink colour."

"We press whole bunches of grapes through our Coquard basket press, (as used in Champagne), before fermenting in stainless steel, and resting on its lees ahead of bottling. After bottling, it is kept cool and capped (sur lattes) for over two years before being disgorged at a low dosage in Spring 2021."
