Simpsons Gravel Castle Chardonnay

Kent-based winery Simpsons has unveiled the 2019 vintage of its Gravel Castle Chardonnay. Made from Burgundian Chardonnay clones 96 and 548, the grapes were gently pressed and the juice was cold settled for 24 hours, then racked and inoculated with aromatic yeasts. The wine then underwent partial malolactic fermentation to soften the acidity and increase mouthfeel, before being aged on fine yeast lees before bottling in spring 2020. The exemplary English wine is described as having aromas of citrus and nashi pear, and flavours of tropical fruit.

RRP: £17.
