  • A zesty, fruit-driven, and unoaked Chardonnay displaying fresh, citrus aromas, refreshing tropical fruit flavors, and a smooth, textured palate.

The winemaking methods promote the purest expression of fruit and the Kentish terroir, with as little intervention as possible. The grapes from Burgundian Chardonnay clones 96 and 548 were carefully harvested, gently pressed and the juice was cold settled for 24 hours. Once racked, the juice was inoculated with aromatic yeasts. The wine underwent full malolactic conversion to soften the acidity and increase mouthfeel. The wine was aged on fine lees prior to bottling in spring.

This delightful Chardonnay displays delicate aromas of white melon and orange blossom, with superb mouth-watering minerality, citrus peel, quince and fresh green apple flavours and a lingering, textured palate

Simpsons Wine Estate is situated in the Elham Valley; an unspoiled 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 the Champagne region and on to Burgundy. The Roman Road and Railway Hill vineyards are planted with Burgundian clones 96 and 548, at a density of 4,200 vines per hectare on either Fercal or 41B rootstocks. The Guyot-trained vines flourish on sloping, south-facing vineyards, which ensure 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 take place by hand and they are signed up to the Wine GB Sustainability Scheme.
