Product Description

Rubus White Blend 2015 is made from 80% Colombard, 10% Ugni Blanc and 10 % Gros Manseng

Fresh, clean and lively with intense exotic fruit aromas. Crisp, clean and zesty in the mouth, it offers delicate flavors of citrus fruit and grapefruit, and a long lingering finish.

This is blend of three different grape varitals, all vinified separately.

Soil type is argilo-calcaire (limestone and clay)

Wine was aged on the lees for 3 months before bottling giving that extra boost of flavors..

A special bottle was used, darker, in order to protect the wine from the sunlight, gaining a few extra month of freshness, combined with the screwcap that also extands shelf life.

Enjoy as an aperitif or with grilled fish, shellfish and appetizers.

Winery: Rubus

The Rubus Concept
Rubus wines are a private label created and used by Kysela Pere et Fils, LTD in order to buy, bottle and market wine found at incredible quality/price ratio. All Rubus wines are selected by Fran Kysela MS.

It was first used for a superb batch of 1,200 cases of Amador county Zinfandel back in 1997.  The wine sold in a few days and the Rubus brand was not used since then.

During a trip in California in 2009, when Fran Kysela tasted some incredible wines (available in bottle but without label), he decided to help resurrect the brand creating an outstanding  Cabernet Sauvignon from Stag's Leaps district in Napa Valley (California) , followed by an excellent Chardonnay from Russian River Valley (California)

We then developed the Rubus Zinfandel from Lodi (California).

In 2011, we added a Shiraz/Viognier blend from the Barossa in Australia.

For 2012, the newest addition to the Rubus line is a Chardonnay from Colchagua Valley in Chile.

Rubus is now its own brand representing quality for the consumer and an incredible price along the way.
