Disgorged 2017. All Chardonnay from the Sussex Chalk at Wiston. One of the first vintages here, made by Dermot Sugrue.
Tangy stewed apple, lime sherbet. Some putty and nougat, a little marine and with a flash of agave vegetality that is not obtrusive. Very tangy citrus syrup on the palate, which has hit a good point on the ageing curve. The style here is less oxidative than more modern Wiston vintages – more oak and less SO2 now? – which, for my money, suits the fruit better, allowing it to hit this sort of point in bottle. 16
