Ridgeview Bloomsbury 2008
RidgeView Estate is dedicated solely to the production of the highest quality sparkling wine from traditional Champagne varieties and methods. The RidgeView Estate is just 1½ miles north of the highest point on the Sussex Downs - Ditchling Beacon. The whole estate runs to 30 acres (12 hectares), with a further 6 acres leased. RidgeView also has new clients who have recently planted or about to plant, under its direction, some 50 acres of vines of the "classic Champagne" varieties along the Sussex and Kent areas bordering the La Manche (The Channel). The RidgeView Bloomsbury Cuvée Merret is light gold colour with a very fine mousse. Chardonnay dominance brings crisp fruit freshness and toasty notes; whilst the two Pinot’s add depth and character. Drink now or age for the next few years to let the brioche flavour develop further.
Food Pairings for Ridgeview Bloomsbury
A light gold colour with a fine persistant mousse. Citrus fruit aromas and a hint of melon and honey. Chardonnay dominance brings finesse, along with crisp fruit freshness and toasty notes. The two Pinot’s add depth and character. A beautifully balanced finish. Will age gracefully over time as the Chardonnay matures.
