Sparkling Wines


Sparkling Wines

  • Simpsons' Wine Estate is situated amid the pristine beauty of the Elham Valley - an unspoilt chalk seam in the North Downs of Kent. 'The Garden of England', where the contours of the land, the climate and the soil could scarcely be improved upon for viticulture.

    Each bottle of Simpsons' sparkling wine is created according to the traditional method. Their base wines are expertly vinified and bottled, at which point the secondary fermentation begins, generating fine, perfectly formed bubbles. Once the fermentation is complete, each bottle, then matures for between 15 months and 4 years in the meticulously monitored conditions of our winery thus achieving peak complexity.

    Chaklands Classic Cuvée

    Their traditional method classic cuvée is the epitome of English elegance and expertise and is created from exclusively estate grown grapes from vineyards situated on the iconic, chalk slopes of the North Downs of Kent. 

    With 20 months of lees ageing. Chaklands is pale gold in colour and displays an enticing caramelised pear and millefeuille pastry nose. There are bright citrus fruit flavours and minerality on the palate with linear precision and impressive length.

    Canterbury Rose - Rosé

    Their traditional method rosé is created with exclusively estate grown Pinot Noir grapes from vineyards situated on the iconic, chalk slopes of the North Downs of Kent. It is the essence of English taste and luxury.

    Aged for 15 months on lees, Canterbury Rose is delicately pink with a fine mousse and a soft bouquet of rose petal and fresh strawberry sorbet. A creamy, rounded texture is balanced with crisp berry flavours and a refined finish.

    Simpsons' Wine Estate has a total of 30 hectares/90 acres of vineyards in production. They planted the first 10 hectares/ 30 acres of Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir in 2014. This is their Roman Road Vineyard, situated alongside the route the Romans first marched when invading England in AD 43, bringing with them the first vines. A further 20 hectares/60 acres of the same three grape varieties were established on the southern slopes of the village during 2016 and 2017. This is their Railway Hill Vineyard, so called because the Canterbury 10 Folkeslone light railway passed through this site in the late 19th and first half of the 20th Century.
