Located just outside Canterbury on the North Downs the Simpsons Estate is home to some exceptionally good English wines. This is an intriging and unique white thought to be the first of its kind produced in Great Britain. Pinot Meunier is most commonly used as the final flourish in the blending of Champagne and English sparkling wine but here it is the main event in a creamy still wine. This wine has aromas of poached winter berries, stewed peach, brioche and balsamic nuances, maybe reminiscent of a flavoursome Vigonier. It finishes with a creamy mouth texture from lees ageing. An exceptional wine that pairs nicely with smoked salmon, sashimi, canapés or melon and avocado salsa
