This is brilliant stuff. At the Oddbins mixed case price of £16 it’s really good value; it’s certainly worth the regular £20 price. One to serve to those who haven’t yet woken up to the English sparkling wine revolution.
Ridgeview Cavendish 2007 Sussex, England
A traditional method sparkling wine with 25% Chardonnay, 34% Pinot Noir and 41% Pinot Meunier. 12% alcohol. Yellow colour with a hint of gold. Warm, subtly toasty, gently nutty nose. The palate is complex, broad, a little toasty and has nice acidity. Fresh and fruity but also complex and quite serious. May well develop in bottle. 92/100 (£20 Oddbins)
