Description

Roebuck Estates Rosé de Noirs 2016

Roebuck Estates Rosé de Noirs is a vibrant English sparkling Rosé. This is the first vintage release and it sparkles all year round, for any occasion.

Delicate rose pink colour. The nose opens with fragrant aromas of ripe red fruits, white peach and rose petals. The palate has a beautiful balance with a bright seam of acidity, a fine yet persistent mousse and a long elegant finish. Wild strawberries, ripe raspberries and white peach layer with delicate notes of honeysuckle and white blossom.

95% Pinot Noir and 5% Pinot Précoce. The fruit comes from Roebuck Estates' Roman Villa 6-hectare vineyard in the beautiful country of Sussex, near the picturesque market town of Petworth. The vines were planted in 2007 on a mixture of Burgundian and Champagne clones. South facing, the gentle slopes are protected by the South Downs, which moderate the prevailing south-westerly winds, and the loam/clay rich soils give great structure and depth to the wines.

Harvesting of only the finest grapes is done by hand. Whole-bunch pressing and partial fermentation in the finest French oak casks. A generous lees ageing of 36 months in bottle. A splash of Pinot Précoce is added prior to release imparting an attractive pale pink hue and ripe red fruit characteristics on this delicious wine. Around 10% of the wine ages in old Burgundian oak barrels for 3 months.
