Simpsons Estate, Kent
Gravel Castle Chardonnay
When you look at Simpsons’ vineyards, it’s hard not to think they’ve found a magical plots. This area of the North Downs has some of the highest sunshine hours in the UK, their slopes are perfectly positioned to optimise sun capture and protect from winds and frosts. The chalky soils are on the same seam that runs from Champagne and Chablis, and the maritime influence of the coast being just eight miles away results in a long, slow ripening season that produces immensely complex grapes.
On first sip of the Simpsons Wine Estate’s unoaked Gravel Castle Chardonnay, one instantly brings to mind Chablis; immense quality, but also due to the minerality and laser-like lemon and lime imparted by the Burgundy clone vines planted on chalky soils. Simpsons Wine Estate’s ethos is to consistently make the finest wines possible in Kent. And as you dive deeper into this wine’s fresh blossom, crunchy pear and tropical fruit sorbet flavours, with it becomes apparent the Simpsons are probably the finest still winemakers working in the UK today.
