Simpsons - Chalklands Classic Cuvée, Kent, England (N.V.)
The Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier vines are picked separately over a two-week period. Each variety is then individually fermented using a selection of different yeasts. All components undergo malolactic fermentation and spend 3 months in tank ageing on light lees. After a series of tastings, the wines are carefully blended, filtered and bottled, ready to undergo the ‘prise de mousse’. Following bottle fermentation, the Chalklands NV spends between 12 -18 months ageing on yeast lees prior to disgorgement.
40% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Meunier
