In 2010, Ridgeview caught global attention when they received the trophy for “Worldwide Best Sparkling Wine” at the Decanter World Wine Awards, the first and only time this has been awarded to a producer outside Champagne. It was the official wine served for Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012. Since then, Ridgeview’s sparkling wines have been the “go-to” sparkling wines served for heads of state visiting Great Britain. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, prime minister David Cameron, Sir Richard Branson, Sir John Major, Tony Blair and Gordon Brown, Hillary Clinton, London Mayor Boris Johnson, Tom Hanks, and Kevin Spacey enjoyed Ridgeview wines paired with sole in coldwater crawfish sauce and Windsor palace-raised lamb with parsley, but don’t wait for a dinner party like this to come around: try the Bloomsbury Brut for life’s smaller celebrations, too.

 

The Bloomsbury is Chardonnay-dominant, supported by the fullness of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Hand-harvested fruit is gently pressed, then fermented by the yeast used developed at the Institute Oenologique de Champagne. The resulting wine comfortably stands beside those from the other side of the English Channel. It shows a light golden colour with a fine, persistent mousse. Chardonnay dominance brings finesse, along with crisp freshness. The Pinots add depth and character. This will age gracefully for three to four years as the Chardonnay matures.

 

“This wine brims with fruit and freshness. A host of apple notions comes alive on nose and palate: The appetizing, ripe tartness of Cox Orange Pippin, the mouthwatering crispness of Granny Smith and the mellowness of Golden Delicious. It has a refreshing, open honesty, juicy and totally inviting. Underneath all that allure lies rich autolysis, underlined by a fine, creamy mousse. Flavours and freshness linger.”

92 points, Wine Enthusiast, Dec 2017

 

“The NV Bloomsbury is a blend of two-thirds Chardonnay with the remainder Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier and this disgorgement from February 2017 has 8.8 grams per litre of residual sugar. It has a rich and generous, slightly honeyed bouquet with beeswax and Granny Smith apple aromas. The palate is crisp on the entry, quite saline with fine tension. I appreciate the tension on the finish and it lingers long in the mouth with just the right amount of salinity.”

91 points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, June 2017

 

“Pale lemon colour with appealing stone and citrus aromas. Passionfruit character and a crisp, clean and fruity texture, with brioche hints.”

Gold Medal, International Wine Challenge, 2017
