Cavendish Brut NV, Ridgeview, East Sussex, England

Sold out.

silky, rich, raspberry
In a hundred years when people speak of English sparkling wine Ridgeview, alongside Nyetimber and maybe a handful of others will be referred to as one of the great originators; one of the great Grand Marques that paved the way for others to follow. The Cavendish is Ridgeview's traditional blend comprised of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. It is a rich gold in colour with a fine, persistent, silky mousse that charms the palate. The dominance of the Pinot makes itself known in richness and complexity and flavours of red fruits while the Chardonnay brings freshness and finesse to the blend.
