Winemaker Notes

Ridgeview Wine Estate's signature blend Bloomsbury is light golden in color 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.

Wine Enthusiast
Green apple and greengage on the nose turn into white peach and lemon on the palate. The mousse is frothy and lively and there is a wonderful depth to these tart fruit flavors that takes you to juicy, green pastures and white blossom. Glints of green apple flash at every corner and adorn the admirably dry finish. This echoes long and leaves the palate wonderfully clean.

Ridgeview Wine Estate, British

The Estate was founded by Christine and Michael Roberts in 1994. Four members of the Roberts’ family now continue to have leading roles in the business and are dedicated to creating world class sparkling wines in the South Downs of England. Following the traditional winemaking methods used by their neighbors in France, they have developed expert knowledge of producing sparkling wines in England.

Being just 88 miles north of Champagne with almost identical geology and climate, it is not surprising that Ridgeview wines are being compared by wine writers to those of the quintessential sparkling wine area. Just a little further North from Champagne is the South Downs of Sussex, the geological formation of which continues through to the east of France down to Champagne. Cool nights make it ideally suited for the growing of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier for traditional method sparkling wines. The combination of chalk and clay in the Downland area of South East England bears an uncanny similarity to the Champagne region. 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). Ridgeview now has partnership vineyards across the South East of England totaling 170 acres who work together with Ridgeview to produce the finest quality fruit.

Ridgeview Estate is located on a low ridge of paludina limestone, on top of a sandstone bed. Sloping southwards towards the Downs and just seven miles from the sea, the winters are mild. The high hills to the south create a rain shadow, keeping the micro climate comparatively dry and positively hot in the summer. The cooler climate enables the grapes to retain high levels of natural acidity when they are fully ripe which is crucial to producing sparkling wines with fine flavors.

The limestone soils of England’s southern end have proven ideal for the production of sparkling wine. While it might seem too damp and cold for grape growing, recent warm summers and the onset of global warming signify great future growth for the British wine industry.

Representing the topmost expression of a Champagne house, a vintage Champagne is one made from the produce of a single, superior harvest year. Vintage Champagnes account for a mere 5% of total Champagne production and are produced about three times in a decade. Champagne is typically made as a blend of multiple years in order to preserve the house style; these will have non-vintage, or simply, NV on the label. The term, "vintage," as it applies to all wine, simply means a single harvest year.
