This unique, still, white Pinot Meunier displays sweet and savoury aromas of poached winter fruit with balsamic nuances and a delicious creamy mouth-feel. Pinot Meunier grapes (clones 798 & 799) from the Roman Road vineyard were hand picked and carefully whole bunch pressed. The juice settled for 48 hours before racking, underwent a long, slow primary fermentation using aromatic yeasts and full malolactic fermentation. The wine rested on fine lees to build palate weight before bottling in spring 2019. 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.
