Producer Note
Charles and Ruth Simpson have been making award-winning wines in the South of
France since 2002. In 2012, attracted by the quality of the terroir and the opportunity to
become part of one of the most dynamic wine producing regions in the world, they
brought their expertise back to the UK, establishing Simpsons Wine Estate. Aspiring to
produce the finest quality English wine, they planted 30 hectares of vineyards on the
iconic chalk terroir of the North Downs and built a state-of-the-art gravity fed winery. In
2016, the Simpsons saw their first harvest. With a strong focus on provenance, they
produce a highly-acclaimed range of exclusively estate-grown still and sparkling wines,
including the Chalklands Classic Cuvée 2016, which won a gold medal in the 2019
Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships.
Vineyard
Simpsons Wine Estate is situated in the Elham Valley; an unspoilt seam in the North
Downs of Kent where the contours of the land, the climate and the soil are excellent for
viticulture. The intensely lime-rich chalk soil forms part of the same chalk ridge that
stretches from southern England to Burgundy. The grapes come from the Roman Road
vineyard, where the Guyot trained vines are trained on vertical foliage wires to help with
canopy management. The Pinot Meunier vines are planted at a density of 4,200 vines
per hectare from clones 791, 977 and 978. They are grown on south facing slopes,
ensuring heat accumulation in the day and cold air drainage at night. The vineyard is
less than eight miles from the coast, providing a crucial maritime influence insulating
the fruit against intense temperature variations. Grass cover crops between the rows
encourage biodiversity within the vineyard. Pruning and harvesting takes place by
hand and Simpsons is signed up to the WineGB’s Sustainability Scheme.
Winemaking
The hand-picked grapes were carefully whole bunch pressed. The juice was cold
settled for 48 hours before being racked and undergoing a long, slow fermentation
using aromatic yeasts. The wine went through full malolactic conversion, resulting in a
creamy texture and then rested on its fine lees to build palate weight.

texture.
