Wiston NV Blanc de Blanc (Chardonnay)

Sale price Price £26.50 Regular price

Grape varieties: 100% Chardonnay

Pressing: The grape varieties are pressed separately and in whole bunches using a traditional, gentle Coquard basket press – as used in the Champagne region - to preserve the delicate fruit flavours and aromas in the juice. The current Blanc de Blancs NV is largely from grapes harvested and pressed in 2014 with reserves from 2009 and 2013.

“The NV Blanc de Blancs has a superb bouquet: vibrant and quite stony with plenty of dew- speckled Granny Smith apples. The palate is very crisp with superb tension, fleet of foot with a brisk, racy citrus-driven finish. What a thrilling, live-wire sparkling Chardonnay from Wiston. You almost crave to sip this by the sea with a huge plate of freshly shucked oysters.” Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate June 2017
