Owners Charles and Ruth Simpson, who also own Domaine de Sainte Rose in the Languedoc, teamed up with luxury bath product brand Noble Isle to create the Golden Harvest range.

A first for Noble Isle, the products include a hand wash and a hand lotion made from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier grapes grown at the Simpson’s Canterbury estate.

“The hand wash is a pure and pale gold, with the depth of colour suggestive of a Pinot dominant, top quality English Blanc de Noirs,” Charles Simpsons said.

“Both products boast vibrant notes of Granny Smith apple, fresh grape and fragrant watermelon combined with delicate rose and hints of jasmine,” he added.

They each have top notes of juniper, apple and watermelon, heart notes of violet, rose and jasmine and base notes of oak moss, patchouli and musk.

“Noble Isle is renowned for the quintessentially British products and aromas that they use in their ranges.

“When they approached us about working together to produce a range celebrating English wine, we jumped at the chance,” Charles Simpson said.

“The grapes used to produce the products were from our first harvest at Simpsons and we are all delighted with the result,” he added.

Golden Harvest Hand Wash (£18) and Hand Lotion (£20) have gone on sale at Liberty, Fortnum & Mason and Harvey Nichols.

Having established the 30-hectare estate in 2014, the first sparkling wine release from Simpsons is expected to go on sale next year.
