2018 Ariel Blanc de Blanc
Ariel is the brand new Blanc de Blanc bubbles from Ash Ridge.
Lovingly crafted using all the traditional champagne making methods, this wine has been three years in the making.
A Blanc de Blanc (100% Chardonnay), the initial base wine was barrel fermented and left on less for 1 year. This wine was then bottled and re fermented to build a very fine mousse (bubbles), and then left again on bottle lees for another 1 and a hald years. Finally the bottles were riddled, disgorged and dosaged, before the final cork and packing was applied. Quite a long winded process but the result is worth the wait.
Rich and tetural with nuttiness and complexity, and super fine bubbles. This bubbles is simply delicious and worth any good occasion.
Ariel - celebrate the journey.
