A classic blend of the three Champagne grapes, it boasts great purity and elegance. Lemon and apple aromas are followed by a palate of delicate stone fruit and crisp acidity: long, complex and absolutely delicious.
Sugrue-Pierre is the personal project of celebrated English sparkling winemaker Dermot Sugrue. Sugrue has been the winemaker behind many of England's best sparkling wines over the last 10 years. Previously the winemaker at Nyetimber, he left in 2006 to establish the Wiston Estate Winery with the Gorings of West Sussex. The same year he also planted a 1 hectare vineyard in Storrington which has been in full production since 2009.
This was the first crop from a Sussex vineyard planted on chalk in 2006, harvested in near perfect conditions. 60% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir, pressed in a traditional Coquard basket press with a small portion put to new oak. Bottled May 2010, extremely limited production. Disgorged in June and October 2012 at 8g/L dosage.
Chardonnay 60%, Pinot Noir 40%
