Wiston Estate Cuvée Rosé NV England - impressive pink fizz

wiston estate rose

I was very impressed by this pink English sparkling wine. It’s a non-vintage blend made by Dermot Sugrue. It’s 50% Pinot Noir (about 12% of this is red wine for colour), 40% Pinot Meunier and 10% Chardonnay. Base wines are mostly stainless steel fermented, but there are some old barrels used, too. The base vintage is 2010.

12% alcohol. Beautifully packaged, this is a salmon pink colour in the glass. Fresh, bright, focused and fine with dominant citrus fruits and subtle notes of strawberry and rosehip syrup. Quite dry, focused and linear with keen acidity that’s well integrated into the whole. There are also some notes of ripe apple. Lovely precision. 91/100
