  • Bloomsbury is an elegant English sparkling wine with a pale gold colour and a delicate, persistent fizz. It offers refined aromas of creamy lemon zest, white peach, and a touch of honeyed autolysis. The wine is crafted from carefully selected Pinot varietals and Chardonnay, which lend depth and character to the refreshing acidity. The grapes are gently pressed and then fermented at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks using selected Champagne yeasts. "Bloomsbury" is a blend of recent vintages and reserve wines, some of which have undergone malolactic conversion. After spending six months in stainless steel on the lees, the wine undergoes secondary fermentation in underground cellars, where it matures for an average of 18 months before disgorging.

The grapes were gently pressed before fermentation at 18°C to 20°C in stainless steel tanks with selected Champagne yeasts. ‘Bloomsbury’ is a blend of carefully selected recent vintages and reserve wines, of which a selection underwent malolactic conversion. The wine spent six months in stainless steel on the gross lees from harvest to bottling. Secondary fermentation took place in underground cellars where the slow, cool, traditional-method bottle fermentation lasted an average of 18 months on lees before disgorging.

A pale-gold pioneer of the fresh, fruit-driven English style, with a fine, persistent mousse. Elegant aromas of creamy lemon zest and white peach are gently balanced by honeyed autolysis. On the palate, the Pinot varietals add depth and character to the mouthwatering acidity of the Chardonnay.

The Bloomsbury is made from up to 40 different component base wines from grapes sourced from 28-year-old vines from the original Ridgeview vineyards and carefully selected partner vineyards across Southern England. These are generally south-facing sites, with free draining slopes, in and around the English South Downs, with a couple in East Anglia. The sites are on a combination of chalk, clay, gravel, and sandstone soils and range between 10 to 50 meters in elevation, with a cool maritime climate. Sourcing grapes from multiple vineyards allows for maximizing complexity and consistency. The vines are trained to Vertical Shoot Positioning, the best fit for the climate, resulting in better sunshine interception and disease management. The vines are mostly Guyot pruned, single or double, depending on vine vigour. Ridgeview is working closely with Marco Simonit to preserve older vines and ensure the longevity of younger vines by advocating correct, gentle pruning and maintenance. The vines are managed sustainably, including annual tissue analysis, three-yearly soil analysis including soil organic matter content, annual worm count, and management of the estate woodland. All grapes are hand-harvested.
