Wiston Estate has been owned and managed by the Goring family since 1743, and
owners Harry and Pip have planted grapes on the fields since 2008. Its 6,000
acres straddle the chalky slopes of the South Downs and the flat clay soils of
the Weald. The traditional Coquard press at Wiston is one of only four outside
of France and is unique to the UK. Its large surface area and exceptionally
gentle pressing enables extraction of the very highest quality. The estate has
won numerous awards for their sparkling wines and were dubbed ‘Winery of the
Year’ at the WineGB Awards in 2018 (the most important competition for the
English and Welsh Wine Industry.)

Their Rosé is a blend of 40% Pinot Noir, 30% Pinot Meunier and 30% Chardonnay.
The juice was 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 in July 2015, bringing additional complexity
and structure.

"This is a joyous warm-weather fizz striking just the right balance between
accessibility and interest. Its perfumed nose hints at summer fruits
(redcurrants and raspberry) before a creamy, textured palate adds gravitas."
Hamish Anderson, The Telegraph

"Lovely vibrant fruit character with a rhubarb sort of element to it. Full of
flavour and generosity - proper rosé with good concentration and purity. Good
length, loads of potential - excellent." Richard Hemming MW, Purple Pages of
JancisRobinson.com

"Rhubarb, hibiscus and tart red currant paint a fruity picture on the nose. A
second sniff reveals a good measure of Red Delicious apple. The mousse is creamy
and transports wave upon wave of those vivacious apple and hibiscus notes, all
backed with an autolytic backdrop reminiscent of freshly baked short crust. This
is creamy, joyful and sophisticated with a fine, persistent foam and a long,
delectable finish." Anne Krebiehl MW, Wine Enthusiast November 2019
