The Roman Road vineyard is situated on the sunny, sheltered slopes of the North Downs of Kent, the Garden of England. Exuding a true sense of place, our Roman Road Chardonnay is elegant and pure, with a distinctive mineral quality that you would expect from fruit grown on these iconic chalk soils.
This single vineyard, still white wine is created from Chardonnay grapes carefully selected for their maturity and concentration. The juice undergoes primary and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks in our state-of-the-art winery, before ageing for three months in French oak barrels.
The Roman Road Chardonnay 2017 displays aromas of honeysuckle and white melon, with smooth rich flavours of macadamia and vanilla pod.
This still wine has established a very exclusive, quality base for the Simpsons Wine Estate portfolio and will continue to be produced in limited quantities alongside the sparkling range.
Simpsons’ Wine Estate creates fine English sparkling wines, which reflect the exquisite characteristics of their iconic, chalk terroir in the North Downs of Kent.
Created from estate grown Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, our traditional method classic cuvée is the epitome of English elegance. Pale gold in colour, it has an enticing caramelised pear and floral millefeuille pastry nose with bright citrus flavours, linear precision and impressive length.
This is a fantastic opportunity to pre-order the second sparkling wine to be released from Simpsons’ Wine Estate, created during our inaugural harvest in 2016.
