Simpsons' sparkling release ready for the South East's #EnglishWineNight Celebration

Simpsons’ Wine Estate is delighted to announce the launch of the hotly-anticipated Chalklands Classic Cuvée 2017. The first release of this elegant and luxurious English Sparkling Wine was awarded a Gold Medal and a “Best in Class” title at the 2019 Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships. The 2017 vintage is an excellent and worthy follow-up, which should prove equally popular.

Produced in Barham just outside of Canterbury, the Chalklands Classic Cuvée 2017 was created from purely Estate-grown Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, reflecting the provenance and characteristics of the Simpsons’ chalk-rich vineyards in the heart of the Wine Garden of England. Pale gold in colour, it has an enticing caramelised pear and floral millefeuille pastry nose with bright citrus flavours, linear precision and impressive length.

Over the last month, Simpsons’ Wine Estate has also released three of their 2019 still wines, which are selling exceptionally well: Gravel Castle Chardonnay, Railway Hill Rosé in a limited-edition magnum format and, Rabbit Hole Pinot Noir.

Now what could be a better excuse to place your order for these exquisite English wines than this Friday’s virtual #EnglishWineNight celebration on Instagram and Twitter. Last month’s #BIGEnglishWineGoodFriday collective online tasting event reached an audience of 13 million and was a great success for the industry and wine retailers, bringing people together under lockdown.

Organised by WineGB, this Friday’s event will be live on Instagram and Twitter from 7pm and provides a wonderful opportunity to support your favourite wine producer from the South East. Be sure to follow the hashtag #EnglishWineNight to participate and learn more from the associated vineyards, winemakers and fellow aficionados.

Charles and Ruth Simpson, founders of Simpsons’ Wine Estate, will be joining in the celebration and posting a guided tasting of the newly released Chalklands Classic Cuvée 2017. So why not share your videos and photos on Instagram and Twitter, tag Simpsons’ Wine Estate and #EnglishWineNight and join in the fun.
