Second time trying a wine from Wiston Estate in Sussex, and a wholly different experience to boot. This vintage (2014) rosé comfortably stands shoulder-to-shoulder with any of the pink Champagne I’ve had in recent years, and is the most memorable sparkling rosé I’ve tasted since Krug NV some years ago.
The wine’s aromas are dominated by the Pinot Noir that comprises 68% of the cuvée, with dried cherry, rose petal and cranberry, as well as a touch of earthiness. The palate is generous, savoury but with beautifully ripe fruit, medium bodied with mouthwatering acidity and a long, sumptuous finish.
This really is impressive stuff and I encourage anyone new to English sparkling to seek out this splendid wine. — 14 days ago

Oft-dry and tart, the standout from this Connecticut winery. Drinkable year round. — 24 days ago

18+ extraordinary! Perfect aperitif, with a cube of ice. Almost too heady to drink neat. Indescribable (for me) complexity, both nose and on palate. And not expensive! (Also, NOT sparkling, Delectable.) — a month ago
