Simpsons Wine Estate Canterbury Rosé 2017

£29.99

12.0% ABV
Stunningly intense cherry, black forest gateau flavours, so crisp and mouth-watering

A genuinely unique rosé English Sparkling Wine. The intensity of the cherry aromas and flavours is captivating, with a lush dark fruit backdrop. If this sounds too heavy for a rosé, don’t worry, the acidity gives it a magical freshness and moreishness. Aged for 15 months on lees, the Canterbury Rose is delicately pink with a fine mousse and a soft bouquet of rose petal and strawberry sorbet. The Simpsons’ vineyards occupy glorious positions on the sunny, sheltered slopes of the North Downs of Kent, protected from the whimsy of the English climate by ancient woodland and anchored in the iconic chalky soils so highly revered in the world of both still and sparkling wine. On their French wine estate, the award-winning Domaine Sainte Rose in the Languedoc region, the Simpsons have always pursued the cleaner, truer flavours of the grape, and are now bringing this savoir-faire to their English vineyards. With rootstock meticulously matched to the soil and a new world-class winery just minutes from the vines, quality is the watchword.
