  • A serious and well-structured sparkling rosé with aromas of fresh raspberry sorbet through to a palate of exotic fruits and wild strawberries balanced with tangy lime.An elegant sparkling rose with delicate honeysuckle and fresh raspberry sorbet nose, illustrating finesse and balance. On the palate, notes of exotic fruits, such as wild strawberry and smooth lychee, are balanced with tangy lime and come to a clean, complex finish.

The hand-picked grapes were whole bunch pressed in an oxygen-free pneumatic press to preserve the pure aromas and flavours. The juice was cold-settled and fermented in stainless tanks. The wine underwent full malolactic conversion and was rested in the tank until tirage. Following secondary fermentation in the bottle, the wine was aged on its lees for 15 months before disgorgement, with a further 12 months on the cork.

This is a fine rosé with fresh cranberry and vanilla cream aromas, illustrating both finesse and balance. The elegant palate delivers vibrant grapefruit flavours balanced with red berry fruit and savoury nuances, leading to a generous, lingering finish.

Winery

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 through Champagne and on to Burgundy. The grapes come from the Roman Road vineyard, where the Guyot trained vines on vertical foliage wires to help with canopy management. The vines are planted at a density of 4,200 per hectare with a range of sparkling or Burgundian clones on either Fercal or 41B rootstocks. They are grown on south-facing slopes, ensuring heat accumulation during 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 occur by hand, and they are signed up for the WineGB Sustainability Scheme.
