On the QT Pinot Meunier


Bottle of

Simpsons Estate has one of the prettiest vineyards in the country, lying on a gentle chalky slope overlooking the Kent countryside. And this unusual white is made from the Pinot Meunier grape, one of the three grapes usually found in English sparkling wines (as well as champagne). It’s rare to find it on its own in the bottle, especially as a white wine. And it’s a real eye-opener with lovely ripe tropical fruits thanks to the hot 2018 vintage. Only a couple of thousand bottles made so get in there if you want to try it.

    Iโ€™m from Australia and came across your book and love your emails Iโ€™m now getting… heading to London (alone with my 4 yr old) and decided to spend a night in Kent to check some wineries… so this review has made me want to visit Simpsons! Thankyou!
