Exciting times at the Simpsons Estate in Barham, with the bottling of their first ever English Sparkling wine and the super-limited release of their still Roman Road Chardonnay 2016. This month also sees the launch of Noble Isle, a range of products made from extracts of English Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir grapes.
Kent based, Simpsons Wine Estate has teamed up with bath and body specialist, Noble Isle, to produce Golden Harvest Hand Wash and Hand Lotion, the beauty brand’s first foray into the world of English wine. These luxurious products use Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir grapes from the Simpsons Estate in Barham, near Canterbury, to produce this new collection.
Top Notes: Juniper Berry, Green Apple, & Watermelon
Heart Notes: Violet Leaf, Rose & Jasmine
Base Notes: Oak Moss, Patchouli & Musk
Winemaker’s Notes: the hand wash is a pure and pale gold, with the depth of colour suggestive of a Pinot dominant, top quality English Blanc de Noirs. Both products demonstrate vibrant notes ofvibrant Granny Smith apple, fresh grape and fragrant watermelon combined with delicate rose and hints of jasmine. On absorption, the tropical fruit, patchouli and musk notes emerge creating a long and silky smooth finish
Comments Charles Simpson, co-owner, Simpsons Wine Estate, “Noble Isle is renowned for the quintessentially British products and aromas that they use in their ranges. My sister Katy, is the founder and director of Noble Isle, and when she approached us about working together to produce a range celebrating English wine, we jumped at the chance! The grapes used to produce the products were from our first harvest at Simpsons and we are all delighted with the end result.”
The New Golden Harvest Hand Wash (£18) and Hand Lotion (£20) are available online at Nobleisle.com as well as in-store and online at Liberty, Fortnum & Mason and exceptional independent retailers across the UK.
