This stunning English Sparkling Wine is incredibly rounded, rich and delicious. In 2012, Charles and Ruth Simpson purchased 30 hectares of prime viticultural land in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Kent. The land lies in a hilly valley at Barham, beside Canterbury, and their dream was to make the very finest English sparkling wine. But they are starting with an advantage, as they have been making wine at their Domaine Sainte Rose estate in the Languedoc since 2002.

Tasting Notes

Beautifully delicate, floral aromas of millefeuille and citrus. Fine and precise on the palate, with delicious hints of caramelised pear. Astonishingly fine bubbles; a distinct mineral finish from eastern Kent's chalk-infused soils. Match with smoked salmon, Whitstable oysters, or serve by itself as an aperitif.
