For more than 25 years, Ridgeview have been producing world-class sparkling wines. We planted our vineyards at a time where many believed that producing English wine just couldn’t be done. Today the English wine industry is thriving and we feel immense pride for the role we have played in that.
We promise to deliver a memorable moment in every glass, this is not only through the award-winning taste of our sparkling wine, but the occasion upon which you choose to open a bottle. A glass of Ridgeview is never easily forgotten and always best enjoyed in the company of friends and family.
Light gold colour with a fine persistent mousse. Clean, crisp pear and white peach aromas are balanced by gentle honey notes. Chardonnay dominance brings finesse, along with crisp fruit freshness. The two Pinot’s add depth and character. A beautifully balanced finish. The grapes were handpicked followed by whole bunch pressing. Ridgeview has been at the forefront of the recent evolution of English sparkling wine production with one of England’s only underground cellars and a state-of-the-art winery. Their English Sparkling Wines are exported around the world and served at many prestigious occasions. Wine GB Gold medal winner 2019.
www.jancisrobinson.com tasting note: “Lovely buttery note on the palate and ripe apple fruit too. Smooth and rounded with a lightly spiced finish. Very much in the middle of the stylistic spectrum – crowd-pleasing, but with enough yeasty notes on the finish to give credibility and ageability too. 16.5+/20” (Richard Hemming)
