Ridgeview is one of the top dogs in the UK sparkling wine scene. They have also won numerous awards. We tasted the top names (including Nytimber) over a few years and found them to be THE BEST. Their sparkling wines are clearly world class.
Ridgeview's Blanc de Noir is only made in the best vintages with a combination of their finest pinot grapes. Hence, the word LIMITED RELEASE on the label. This is a blend of Pinot Noir and Pinot Munier. Limited availability of course! Max. 2 per customers.
A deep golden colour with a persistent fine stream of bubbles. Rich, earthy red fruit aromas are followed by a complex toasted palate. The finish is long-lasting and beautifully balanced.
