  • This sparkling wine has a delicate rose petal colour and is fruit-driven with plenty of fine bubbles. It has aromas of wild strawberry and honeyed redcurrant, and the fresh taste is full of sherbet with a balanced, creamy and long finish. It's made from a blend of recent vintages and reserve wines, with the grapes pressed in whole bunches to draw out the finest juice. The juice is then fermented in stainless steel at 18°C to 20°C with selected Champagne yeasts. A carefully measured amount of Pinot Noir red wine is added to a blend of base wines using the 'assemblage' method to achieve its delicate rose colour. Some of the blend undergoes malolactic conversion before blending. The wine undergoes secondary fermentation in underground cellars at a cool temperature for traditional-method bottle fermentation, with an average of 18 months on lees before disgorging.

Made from a blend of recent vintages and reserve wines. The grapes were pressed in whole bunches, gently drawing out the finest juice to be fermented in stainless steel at 18°C to 20°C with selected Champagne yeasts. The 'assemblage' method gave Fitzrovia its delicate rose glow; a perfectly judged fraction of Pinot Noir red wine was added to a blend of base wines, with a selection undergoing malolactic conversion prior to blending. Secondary fermentation occurred in underground cellars at the optimum temperature for slow, cool, traditional-method bottle fermentation with an average of 18 months on lees before disgorging.

It has a delicate rose petal hue, incredible fruit-driven purity, and an abundance of fine bubbles. Aromas evoke wild strawberry and honeyed redcurrant, while the fresh palate brims with sherbet, balanced by a creamy, long finish.

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.
