Vineyard

Grapes are sourced from our original estate vines, along with carefully selected partner vineyards across Southern England; typically south facing, with free draining slopes, on varied chalk, clay, gravel and sandstone soils. These sites range from between 10-50 metres above sea level, benefitting from a cool, maritime climate.

Winemaker

Simon Roberts

Viticulture

Vines up to 25 years in age. Combination of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier varietals. Vine density average 4000 per hectare. Double guyot pruning with vertical shoot positioning.

Vinification

Handpicked grapes are gently pressed in whole bunches and fermented in stainless steel tanks at 18-20°C using classic sparkling wine yeasts. A selection of white base wines go through malolactic conversion before blending with a perfectly judged fraction of red wine made from ripest Pinot Noir grapes; the ‘assemblage’ method giving Ridgeview Fitzrovia its delicate rose glow. Secondary bottle fermentation takes place in our naturally cool underground cellars with average lees ageing of 18 months.

Maturation

Minimum of 18 months on lees and minimum of 3 months on cork post disgorging.
