Crushed and Cured
Roebuck Estates, Rosé de Noirs, Sussex
Delicate rose-pink in colour with fragrant aromas of strawberries, white peach and rose petals. The palate displays notes of ripe red fruits, honeysuckle and white blossom. Beautifully balanced with a bright seam of acidity and a long elegant finish.
Roebuck Estates adopt a single-minded approach, using only the finest quality estate-grown grapes, from exceptional vineyard sites to create award-winning wines from classic Champagne varieties. Located close to the historic market town of Petworth in West Sussex, Roebuck Estates was established in 2013 by two Brits.
The fruit was whole-bunch pressed and partially fermented in old Burgundian barrels. Approximately 40% of the juice went through malolactic fermentation. Following a secondary fermentation in bottle, the wine was aged on its lees for a minimum of 36 months. A splash of Pinot Précoce was added as a still red wine at disgorgement giving a pale pink tone and attractive wild berry aromatics to this wine.
Grape Variety: Pinot Noir (95%), Pinot Précoce (5%)
