Guess where this attractive Champagne copycat comes from? West Sussex. It's true! With a little help from some great summer seasons and a handful of French experts, top-class wines such as this have begun emerging from the Ridgeview vineyards. Made with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, this fresh, accessible bubbly is a real talking point and a serious contender to it's over the channel neighbours.
The Ridgeview Estate in West Sussex is dedicated solely to the production of the highest quality sparkling wine from traditional Champagne varieties and methods, with winemaker, Michael Roberts, at the helm.
This vintage will be disgorged over a period of 18 months and as it ages more both on the cork and on lees, distinct breadiness will become more noticeable than at this first disgorgement. Fruit characters are very dominant with Chardonnay bringing not only citrus & grapefruit characters, but some tropical fruit. Brioche flavours will continue to develop and deepen over the next 2-3 years. Lovely, fine mousse with a light gold colour. Ready to drink now or keep for 3-4 years.
Type: Syrah / Shiraz
Sparkling Shiraz? Give. It. A. Go. No excuses. This hedonistic red is the perfect 'indulgent' wine. Smells of lush, just-ripe Shiraz. Offers a naturally pure sweetness and charming fizz. This is the chocolate lovers delight; or a delicious transitional sip between red and white.
