Roberson Wine x Simpsons Estate

UK fine wine merchant Roberson has partnered with Kent-based winery Simpsons as it launches four new still wines following an “incredible” harvest last year.

The four wines are all named after interesting local roads that surround the vineyards and winery in Barham, including Gravel Castle Chardonnay, Derringstone Pinot Meunier, Railway Hill Rosé made with Pinot Noir, and Rabbit Hole Pinot Noir.

The wines, which will be distributed through Roberson, will be joined by a Roman Road Chardonnay later in the year, which will be aged for 12 months before release.

Ruth Simpson, co-owner of Simpsons Wine Estate said that 2018 was “an incredible year for us at Simpsons Wine Estate and we’re thrilled to be working with the team at Roberson Wine to launch our new premium still wines.

“We are both quality-driven, family businesses that are passionate about English wine, so we share many commonalities. Roberson Wine has a fantastic list of prestige customers in the wine world and we look forward to introducing our exciting new wines to their exclusive client base.”

“Simpsons’ Wine Estate is just the partner we’ve been looking for,” Talya Roberson, MD of the eponymous retailer, said.

“Their still Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are produced from Burgundian clones grown in chalky soils and sit perfectly alongside our award-winning portfolio of great wines from France and California. We are looking forward to introducing them to the trade this spring.”
