WINE REVIEW

The 2012 South Ridge Brut is a celebration of 20 years of Ridgeview, and what a way to celebrate!

The aromas of the Brut are absolutely delicious, with rich baked pastry, vanilla and stewed apple aromas. Persistent streams medium sized bubbles suggest a lively wine.

Great at first bite – the fizz is slightly fierce but accompanying a rich and delicious palate. Vibrant citrus, very crisp and dry but with a creamy mouthfilling texture. Great length to the flavour with vanilla, brioche and yeasty aftertaste.

One of the English Sparking wines I’ve tried that is the closest at replicating Champagne-style crisp richness and biscuit complexity. Really impressed with this one!
