  • 2021 ‘Gravel Castle’ Chardonnay, Simpsons Wine EstateWhite Wine

    2021 ‘Gravel Castle’ Chardonnay, Simpsons Wine Estate

    £1850

    Simpsons’ Wine Estate creates fine English sparkling wines, which reflect the exquisite characteristics of their iconic, chalk terroir in the North Downs of Kent.

    This is the 4th vintage of this exceptionally popular English Chardonnay, which has bowled over critics and wine lovers alike.  Made from exclusively estate-grown grapes, the Gravel Castle Chardonnay is a zesty, fruit-driven and unoaked Chardonnay, created from Burgundian still wine clones.  It displays fresh, citrus aromas, refreshing tropical fruit flavours and a smooth, textured palate.

    Simpsons Wine Estate is situated in the Elham Valley; an unspoilt seam in the North Downs of Kent where the contours of the land, the climate and the soil are excellent for viticulture. The intensely lime-rich chalk soil forms part of the same chalk ridge that stretches from southern England through Champagne and on to Burgundy. The grapes come from the Roman Road vineyard, named after the route the Romans first marched when invading England in AD 43.  They are grown on south-facing slopes, ensuring heat accumulation in the day and cold air drainage at night. The vineyard is less than eight miles from the coast, providing a crucial maritime influence insulating the fruit against intense temperature variations.

  • Pure Mead, Loxwood MeadworksMead

    Pure Mead, Loxwood Meadworks

    £1950

    Pure Mead is crisp, refreshing and delicately sweet mead, served chilled and enjoyed like a white wine.

    Just as wine is made from grapes, mead is made from honey; however, unlike many other meads you may have tried before, the Loxwood Pure Mead is created using a unique blend of 100% British honey in the ferment – the process that makes the alcohol. It is fermented dry and then back-sweetened with honey, to give the most natural flavour and a delicate sweetness.

    In the glass it has a deep golden colour with honey-citrus aromas. Deliciously off-dry this honey wine has an elegant minerality and crisp zesty flavours which complement the rich, creamy, textured finish.

    Pure Mead is a great pairing with a cheeseboard, slow-roasted pork or ham – think anything you might have honey with! If you would serve a rich or sweeter white wine like a Riesling, try Pure Mead instead.

  • NV Brut Reserve, Lyme BayChampagne & Sparkling Wine, English & Welsh Sparkling Wine

    NV Brut Reserve, Lyme Bay

    £2395

    Seyval Blanc grapes are used to create a bright, fruit-forward and elegant, yet approachable English sparkling wine. Lyme Bay sources its grapes from different vineyards and ferments each parcel separately in order to produce some of the most complex wines in England.  Secondary fermentation in bottle under the Traditional Method process provides structure to the mid-palate and detail to the body of the wine without overpowering the delicate crisp citrus fruit. Pronounced notes of lemon and Granny Smith apple stand out amongst a vibrant and delicate mousse with a clean finish.

    www.jancisrobinson.com review: Distinctly golden – I wonder how long it’s been on the lees? Quince and daphne florals and a buttery lemon-cream richness on the nose and the palate. Wonderful zesty lime peel and orange oils, piquant in an unexpectedly weighty depth of clotted-cream-on-toast. Green apples and a dusting of cinnamon spice. Long, persistent, graceful balance. I did not expect something this classy from Seyval Blanc. Good Value 16.5/20

  • NV Goring Brut, Goring EstateChampagne & Sparkling Wine, English & Welsh Sparkling Wine

    NV Goring Brut, Goring Estate

    £3750

    Made by the Sparkling Wine legend that is Dermot Sugrue, Goring Estate Brut is an elegant, complex English sparkling wine combining a purity of fruit with subtle toasty, nutty notes.

    The fruit comes from two vineyards situated on the South Downs in West Sussex, which are above the 50th parallel and are influenced by a cool, coastal climate. The cool winters, moderate rainfall and temperate summers, combined with cooling sea breezes encourage the grapes to ripen slowly, retaining the natural acidity crucial for producing freshness in high quality sparkling wine. The vines are grown on a chalk escarpment, which is not dissimilar to the soils found in the vineyards of the Côtes de Blancs in Champagne. These chalky soils provide excellent drainage for the vines, as well as imparting great elegance and finesse to the wines.

    Vinified using the Traditional Method and made with equal parts Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, which were each pressed separately in whole bunches using a traditional Coquard basket press which is unique to the UK. The juice was then fermented entirely in stainless steel tanks. Each component of the final assemblage wine went through malolactic fermentation and was allowed to rest on its lees prior to bottling. The second fermentation took place in the bottle, maturing on its fine lees in the cellar for an average of three years, before disgorging.
