Simpsons Rabbit Hole Pinot Noir, Kent
A super sophisticated English Pinot which shows a purplish hue, dark cherry aromas backed up by smoky oak and a mocha finish. A truly classy Pinot that will be the central talking point around the dinner table.
It’s truly is remarkable that, owners, Ruth and Charles never set out to make still wines; believing their plot would only be suitable for premium sparkling wine. Nature has a funny way of surprising us!
