In true British style, on Monday we held a Jubilee party at ours with British food, Pimms and of course, English wine. Check out this spread…
It was the perfect excuse to crack open the sparkler we’d bought at Ridgeview Wine Estate last month. Made from only red grapes – Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier – using the traditional (aka the Champagne) method, Ridgeview Knightsbridge Blanc de Noirs is packed full of red berry and rich yeast flavours, with a mouthwatering acidity and a long finish.
Available for £24.95 from Ridgeview’s website and various retailers, it is the perfect alternative to Champagne, especially in 2012 – the year of British celebrations.
It certainly went down a treat with some cheese and pineapple (classy as ever)… Huzzah!
