Roebuck Estate

Roebuck’s Estate vineyards are located close to the market town of Petworth in West Sussex. Roebuck adopts the approach of using only the finest quality grapes, which they source from a variety of premium Sussex vineyards. The majority of the vineyards are located on chalk, clay, and sandy soils. Once the grapes are perfectly ripe, they are carefully handpicked and transported to the winery. The bunches are then whole bunch pressed and fermented in a mixture of stainless steel and Burgundian oak barrels.
Delicate rose-pink in colour with fragrant aromas of ripe strawberries, raspberries and white peach. An expressive palate displaying deliciously ripe notes of red berry fruits, honeysuckle and a hint of almond. Beautifully balanced with a bright seam of acidity, a fine persistent mousse and a long, yet elegant length
Langoustines, smoked salmon or delicious with red berry desserts.
The fruit destined for this sparkling rosé is whole-bunch pressed and partially fermented in the finest French oak barrels followed by a generous period of lees-ageing in bottle for a minimum of 36 months. A splash of Pinot Précoce is added prior to release imparting an attractive rose pink hue and ripe red fruit characteristics on this sparkling wine.

“Red apple, red cherry and a touch of dried rose petals on the nose. The 2017 vintage has spent a minimum of 36 months in bottle. Rounded and textured on the palate, with brioche, tangerine peel, sweet-spiced red apple tart and walnut.” – Sylvia Wu, Decanter.com “Mouth-filling doughnut-peach and pink-grapefruit. Strawberry chalk dust. Lovely ripeness softening the impact of firm, linear acidity. Tiny bubbles stitching lace through the wine. Real integrity and harmony. – Tamlyn Currin, Jancis Robinson.com
