With a cascade of exceptionally fine bubbles, expressive red berry and almond aromas lead to a vibrant yet rounded palate. It is evocative of raspberry frangipane with a streak of bergamot orange. Gentle spice notes from the Pinot dominance add complexity, while the Chardonnay brings grace and poise. Ridgeview wines have been served at numerous Royal occasions and State Banquets. Ridgeview is a certified B Corporation, meeting the highest standards of social and environmental performance, and is a purpose-driven business with sustainability at its core.

    Silver, DWWA, 2020

The grapes were gently whole bunch pressed before fermentation at 18°C to 20°C in stainless steel tanks with selected Champagne yeasts. ‘Cavendish’ 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 occurred in underground cellars where the slow, cool, traditional-method bottle fermentation lasted an average of 18 months on lees before disgorging.

Winery

The grapes are sourced from the original Ridgeview vineyards, 28-year-old vines, 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.
