Ridgeview Fitzrovia Rosé English Sparkling Wine NV
The Ridgeview Fitzrovia Rosé is an English sparkling wine made from a blend of Chardonnay (68%), Pinot Noir (17%) and Pinot Meunier (15%). The grapes are sourced from the original Ridgeview vineyards (from 28-year-old vines) and carefully selected partner vineyards across Southern England. Made from a blend of recent vintages and reserve wines, the 'assemblage' method gave Fitzrovia its delicate rose glow; a perfectly judged fraction of Pinot Noir red wine was added to a blend of base wines, with a selection undergoing malolactic conversion prior to blending. Secondary fermentation took place in underground cellars at the optimum temperature for slow, cool, traditional-method bottle fermentation with an average of 18 months on lees before disgorging. A delicate rose petal hue with incredible fruit-driven purity and an abundance of fine bubbles. Aromas evoke wild strawberry and honeyed redcurrant, while the fresh palate brims with sherbet, balanced by a creamy, long finish. Ridgeview’s Fitzrovia Brut Rosé was chosen to be served to Barack Obama by Her Majesty the Queen at a Buckingham Palace State Banquet.
