A dozen English rosés to try during English Wine Week

Simpsons Railway Hill Rosé 2018 (£17)

 

One of the most prettily packaged English rosés out there, this pale pink from Simpsons in Kent looks like it comes by way of Provence. Made at Simpsons estate just outside Canterbury from Pinot Noir grown on chalky soils, this peachy pink has a creamy texture and flavours of wild strawberry, tart pink grapefruit, redcurrant, nectarine and lychee, and pairs a treat with poached salmon. Clean, fresh and mouthwatering, it gets its texture from time on lees. Opened by Ruth and Charles Simpson in 2016, Simpsons allowed the Taittinger team to press some of the first grapes from its English vineyard, Domaine Evremond, at the estate. We wonder if Clovis went down the slide?
