Ridgeview's Signature Blend

Blend

Our Bloomsbury is Chardonnay dominant, supported by the fullness of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.

Tasting Note

A light golden colour with a fine, persistent mousse. Citrus fruit aromas with hints of melon and honey. Chardonnay dominance brings finesse, along with crisp freshness. The Pinots add depth and character leading to a beautifully balanced finish. Will age gracefully over time as the Chardonnay matures.

Ageing

Drink now or age for three to four years.

Serving Suggestions

An excellent accompaniment to shellfish and bread-based canapés. The crispness makes it ideal with fish such as salmon and smoked trout. A wonderful celebration wine.

“Very fine fizz, worth every penny. It’s decidedly champagne-like, with a rich, creamy texture, good depth of flavour, and crisp, tiny bubbles."
Suzy Atkins, The Telegraph

"If you want to see what all the sparkling wine fuss is about, crack open the Ridgeview Merret Bloomsbury whose clean, appley, nutty, lemony palate is summer in a glass."
Jane MacQuitty, The Times

Hugh Johnson

" Here’s one of England’s finest fizzes, with lovely freshness, lemony acidity and a bit of toasty richness. Quite complex and brilliantly balanced, this would convert any sceptic."

Jamie Goode

"… Today’s king of fizz is Mike Roberts of Ridgeview Estate."

Anthony Rose

"England's vinous glory: fizz made in the image of champagne.  Alluring and zesty - a sort of rustic Bollinger."

Jancis Robinson
