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, Mike Smith and John Ball, whose love of wine, long-standing friendship, and belief in the potential of the English wine industry sparked several years spent searching for the perfect vineyard plots.
Winemaking: Upon arrival at the winery, the fruit was whole-bunch pressed and fermented in a mixture of stainless steel and Burgundian oak barrels. Approximately 10% 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.
