Ridgeview – Bloomsbury 2013

Bloomsbury 2013 Book Cover Bloomsbury 2013
Chardonnay, Pinot Noir & Pinot Meunier

This Chardonnay led blend of the big 3 grapes is a triumph and really demonstrates excellent value for money as an English Sparkler at £25. It compared very well against NV Champagnes priced at a higher price.

On the nose there are aromas of baked apple, citrus, mineral and some pastry notes.

On the palate the Bloomsbury is initially vibrant and bracing, before moving balanced and smooth mid taste of apples, stone fruit and hints of nut.

This is currently drinking great young, and it will only get better with another year or two in the bottle.

Winemakers Description:

A light golden colour 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.
