ProducerNote

Charles and Ruth Simpson have been making award-winning wines in the South of

France since 2002. In 2012, attracted by the quality of the terroir and the opportunity to

become part of one of the most dynamic wine producing regions in the world, they

brought their expertise back to the UK, establishing Simpsons Wine Estate. Aspiring to

produce the finest quality English wine, they planted 30 hectares of vineyards on the

iconic chalk terroir of the North Downs and built a state-of-the-art gravity fed winery. In

2016, the Simpsons saw their first harvest. With a strong focus on provenance, they

produce a highly-acclaimed range of exclusively estate-grown still and sparkling wines,

including the Chalklands Classic Cuvée 2016, which won a gold medal in the 2019

Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships.

Vintage

2020 saw a bright and sunny start to the growing season in late March and early April

that augured well, but unfortunately it was followed by a series of frosts that ultimately

reduced the crop. On the positive side, the remainder of the summer was relatively

sunny and warm with occasional rain. By harvest, the smaller crop levels and

favourable conditions resulted in high quality fruit that was bursting with intense

flavours.

Vineyard

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 to Burgundy. The Guyot trained vines are trained on

vertical foliage wires to help with canopy management. The vines are planted at a

density of 4,200 vines per hectare with a range of Burgundian clones on either Fercal or

41B rootstocks. 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. Grass cover crops between the rows encourage biodiversity

within the vineyard. Pruning and harvesting takes place by hand and they are signed

up to the WineGB’s Sustainability Scheme.
