WINE REVIEW

Made from 100% Pinot Noir, this is Alder Ridge’s inaugural sparkling wine and was crowned Best English Blanc de Noirs at this year’s Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships, amongst other accolades. This wine was made at the Hattingley Valley winery.

The Alder Ridge has a soft nose of red apple and warm brioche with gentle red berry notes.

This wine has a very appealing texture, with soft ripe fruit flavours and smooth creamy weight.

The dosage feels slightly higher than some which makes it very approachable, whilst maintaining that wonderful depth with hints of savoury that the Pinots bring to a sparkling wine.
