Sugrue Pierre Trouble With Dreams 2013 - August 2017 Decanter review
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. The same year he also planted a one-hectare vineyard in Storrington Priory which has been in full production since 2009, producing the highly-acclaimed and multi-award-winning sparkling wine, ‘The Trouble with Dreams’. In 2017, this, the truly exceptional and very limited ‘The Trouble with Dreams’ 2013, took the top spot in the Independent English Wine Awards.
This is a classic blend of barrel-fermented Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, boasting great purity and elegance, with lemon and apple aromas leading to a palate of delicate stone fruit and refreshingly crisp acidity. This is long, complex and absolutely delicious. Served chilled, this is a stunning apéritif. It also accompanies seafood magnificently. The structure and finesse of this wine give it the versatility to match with a variety of dishes.
