Wiston Estate Brut NV South Downs
English fizz is the sparkling new kid on the block, and it's no longer a secret. Based in the rolling hills of the South Downs in West Sussex, Wiston Estate has been in the hands of the Goring family since 1743 and is today presided over by Harry and Pip Goring. Winemaker Dermot Sugrue seemingly has a Midas touch and is widely considered as one of the UK's finest. A nuanced nose with apple, toast and fresh brioche is supported by a crisp, finely tuned mouthfeel with electric freshness and a rounded long finish.
Our house wine selection has been curated by Alistair Cooper, Master of Wine. We're big believers that the importance of great wine when it comes to great cheese cannot be understated, and as such have selected these wines after hours and hours of scrutiny (and fun), to be all rounders for pairing with our cheese.
Delivery is not only free, and not only at a set day of your choosing, but also comes in a padded climate control box (the only in the industry) that comes with a 48 hour freshness guarantee.
If that wasn't enough, we also add an insert that will talk you through the info on the wines and cheeses, tasting notes and a scorecard to help you make the very most of your cheesegeek delivery!
