Wiston Estate, Blanc de Blancs, Brut 2010
Appealing, generous toasty, buttery nose. Refreshing acidity enlivens some rich flavours of baked apple and buttered tea cakes. Full and broad mouthfeel, charming dry note on the lengthy finish.

This enchanting, slightly rustic sparkling wine has hints of wet wool on top of delicate, crisp apple fruit. Underneath there is an intriguing savoury brioche note entwined with roasted golden peaches. Very stylish and sweetly spiced, this is enormously enjoyable.
