The RUBUS Project

There are winemakers across the globe crafting delicious, fruit-driven wines. There are wineries who are using the most expensive glass, who have hired the most creative artists to design their labels, who have created the most luxurious tasting rooms. Then, there are wineries whose efforts and resources have been devoted to creating the most satisfying wine they can conceive. Fran Kysela set out to find the latter - the ones who are focused on the juice in the bottle, so that he could offer consumers a pleasurable drink at a pleasurable price. He found what he was looking for, and he calls it Rubus.

Rubus is a private label created and used by Kysela Pere et Fils, LTD in order to buy, bottle and market wine found at an incredible quality/price ratio. Over the past few years, Rubus has become an international brand, encompassing wines from various continents. All Rubus wines are selected by Fran Kysela MS.

The Wines!!

Sauvignon Blanc $14.99
The Rubus 2016 Sauvignon Blanc was produced from grapes grown in selected Waipara Valley vineyards.
The extended growing season of warm, fine days and cool nights ensured the fruit was harvested in wonderful condition mid April, 2016.

This wine shows rich gooseberry and tropical fruit aromas with an edge of complexity. The palate is lively and refreshing with a long, lingering finish.

Chardonnay $14.99
Attractive yellow color with some green tones. Its intense varietal character reminds one ripe fruits like pineapple, with notes of melon and honey well harmonized with oak. In the mouth it is full, rich and buttery.

Zinfandel $14.99
Ruby red in color, with red fruit, raspberry, and spice on the nose. This wine is medium in body, with notes of ripe cherry, cedar box, cinnamon, anise, black pepper, and hint of smoke on the palate. It has a long, silky finish.

Shiraz $19.99
This richly concentrated Barossa Shiraz is indicative of the style for which Australia's top production region is famous. The wine is dark in color, rich and dense. There are ample tannins balanced by the powerful fruit. You will note the hints of blackberries, mint, and eucalyptus flavors upfront and in the finish.

Cabernet Sauvignon $22.99
Napa ValleyIts long finish displays full mature flavors of blackberry, currant and chocolate with just a hint of toasty oak and black cherry. The tannins are refined and polished, allowing the fruit to be the focus.
