Ridgeview's award-winning vintage sparkling wine made from 100% Chardonnay.
Terroir, method of production and aging: The grapes for this vintage sparkling wine are grown on a 3-hectare vineyard planted in 1994, with a soil composed of clay and limestone. The basic wine is made in steel tanks, where it also undergoes malolactic fermentation, and matures on the lees until January. A very small part (3-4%) of the wine ages in old barrels from the Burgundy region, which increase the complexity and texture of the wine. After the second fermentation in the bottle, the wine matures for 36 months on the lees, and when recorking, a dosage of 8.8g/l is added. After this, the wine is allowed to rest for another 6 months in the farm's cellar.
Use: An excellent aperitif, which is also suitable as a partner for seafood.
Description: The scent is citrusy, slightly floral and elegant. The taste is typical for Chardonnay, very clean-lined and clean. The long aftertaste is very refined.
