More info

The Goring Brut is made by Dermot Sugrue and comes from the chalky soils of the South Downs in West Sussex which are not dissimilar to the vineyards of the Cotes de Blancs in Champagne.

This was the first crop from a Sussex vineyard planted on chalk in 2006, harvested in near perfect conditions. Equal parts Chardonnay, Pinot Noirand Pinot Meunier, it is pressed in a traditional Coquard basket press with a small portion put to new oak and 18 months on the lees.

Dermot Sugrue is not exactly a new name in the English wine industry but he is certainly a winemaker at the top of his game. Born in Ireland in 1974, he studied Viticulture and Oenology at Plumpton Agricultural College before completing two seasons working at Chateau l'Eglise-Clinet and Chateau Leoville-Barton. In 2003 he joined Nyetimber and was appointed winemaker in 2004. Over the following years he oversaw Nyetimber's emergence as one of the world's greatest sparkling wine producers. From Nyetimber he moved to Wiston Estate in 2006 to work with the Gorings of West Sussex.
