Classic Cuvée 2014
A rich yet refined sparkling wine produced in a vintage that will be looked back on fondly. The fruit destined for our Roebuck Estates Classic Cuvée 2014 is harvested by hand and whole-bunch pressed. Partial fermentation in the finest French oak casks, followed by long lees ageing for a minimum of 36 months, gives the wine additional richness, depth and complexity. The perfect companion for life’s memorable moments.
“This sparkling is a new discovery; only the second vintage, yet mightily impressive. Lemon curd and spice sit over a yeasty, brioche-infused core – it’s intense but fresh.” Susy Atkins, Telegraph Magazine.

Rosé de Noirs 2016
Our newly released Roebuck Estates Rosé de Noirs is carefully crafted from the finest handpicked Pinot Noir grapes grown at our idyllic Roman Villa Vineyard.
The fruit destined for this wine is whole-bunch pressed and partially fermented in the finest French oak casks followed by 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 wine.
Our sparkling rosé is vibrant and expressive with a delicate rose pink hue and notes of wild strawberries, white peach and a hint of honeysuckle. It’s the perfect apéritif to be enjoyed with friends and family all year round.
Blanc de Noirs 2015
Nestled in a blissfully serene valley at the foothills of the South Downs lies our Roman Villa Vineyard where the fruit for this wine was grown. Crafted exclusively from hand-picked Pinot Noir grapes, our Blanc de Noirs 2015 is partially fermented in the finest French oak casks and bottle-aged for a minimum of four years. A rich, yet beautifully balanced wine with delicate bubbles, a silky texture, and a long-lingering finish. Baked apples and ripe stone fruits on the palate are layered with notes of brioche and toasted almonds, characteristic of a generous bottle-ageing.
“Their latest release is the brilliant, elegantly bottled Blanc de Noirs 2015 made entirely from pinot noir grapes grown near the site of the ancient Roman villa at Petworth in West Sussex, which has really individual depth of rich, nutty, lingering flavours stemming from four years lees ageing in the bottle.” Terry Kirby, The Independent
