Simpsons Wine Estate very much appreciates the enthusiastic support and the close relationship established with Barham Village Store and the villagers of the Elham valley. On Friday 4th May between 4 and 6pm we invite loyalty card holders to taste the much anticipated new vintage, produced from Chardonnay grapes at the Roman Road Vineyard. Following the success of last year’s exclusive release, Simpsons Wine Estate are proud to showcase this wine in Barham and hope you can join us for this event. Once again supply of this select local wine is limited. (RRP £22.50)
Roman Road Chardonnay is elegant and pure, with a distinctive mineral quality that you would expect from fruit grown on these iconic chalk soils.
This single vineyard, still white wine is created from Chardonnay grapes carefully selected for their maturity and concentration. The juice undergoes primary and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks in our state-of-the-art winery situated in the village of Barham, before ageing for three months in French oak barrels.
The Roman Road Chardonnay displays aromas of white peach and lime, with clean, citrus flavours, smooth cashew nut on the palate and subtle hints of spice and vanilla.
If you are not a loyalty card holder, you can find the form on our website or go into the shop and ask one of our friendly volunteers.
