Russian Fruit 10.rar


Michael Shaps has been making wine in Virginia for nearly 30 years, focusing on an old-world style while selecting grapes that showcase the potential of the unique terroir nestled in the woods south of Charlottesville. His Petit Manseng is no exception. The grapes are gently pressed off of their skins and the resulting juice is barrel fermented and aged in a mixture of neutral oak barrels and stainless steel. The juice undergoes no malolactic fermentation, allowing for a vivacious natural acidity. The result is a uniquely American wine, bone dry yet brimming with tropical notes of mango, starfruit, and lime peel. Dramatically intense and memorable.




Russian Fruit 10.rar



Marc Rafael (the fils and current proprietor) is the product of Georg and Rosie Rafael.Georg fled Berlin during WWII at the age of 15 with nothing but a train ticket. Somewherealong the way, he met Rosie and everything changed. After Georg and Rosie acquiredsome land in the Oak Knoll District of California, they immediately turned the mundanefarm into a grape growing powerhouse, for years supplying grapes to legendary wineriessuch as Duckhorn, Robert Mondavi, and Far Niente, eventually deciding to make theirown wines. This wine pays hommage to his mother, Rosie, who was responsible for Riesling Chardonnay being planted at their vineyards in the first place. This Chardonnay isdecidedly restrained for the region but nonetheless elegant and exceedingly delicious. Itis aged in neutral barrels for 10 months for a delicate oak presence. Straw-colored, juicy,and refreshingly crisp, this wine displays flavors and aromas of grilled pineapple, freshorchard fruit, lemon zest, and a medium body with a creamy mouthfeel. A wine that couldmake any mother proud.


Husband and wife team Liz & Spencer make their wines with a handful of outstandingand experienced growers in Sonoma and Mendocino which provide inspired fruit for a clutch of vividly fresh and endearingly delicious wines. (Their debut wine was 1998 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, made every year since.) This Grenache, a sensational value, packs an outrageous amount of flavor into a medium bodied package meant to be paired with all sorts of cuisine.


Under the influence of Robert Craft, Stravinsky famously made a volte face and converted to the cause of serial composition. This had followed something of an arid period, and the tough gristle of the discipline required for serial composition did not immediately bear attractive fruit.


An Italian escape in a bottle, this summery rosé is made from hand-picked Negroamaro grapes, a varietal native to the Puglia region. The flavor brings a cornucopia of red fruits and zippy grapefruit with a whiff of florals that will transport you right to the Italian coast.


In a sea of Grenache-based rosés, this 100% Pinot Noir blusher out of the Russian River Valley really stands out. A bright acidity and notes of strawberry, grapefruit, and watermelon make it beautifully refreshing by the pool or for a lingering day of relaxation in the garden.


This wine hails from the Miraval estate (famously owned by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie) in the Côtes de Provence region of France. The fruity and floral flavor will please the most discerning of rosé drinkers, and the pale pink shade was basically made for Instagram.


The Spanish cousin to champagne, this cava was originally created to help promote and save the indigenous Trepat grape varietal that was slowly being removed from Spanish wineries in favor of traditional French grapes. It lends this sparkler a lush, red fruit palate with an addictively spicy edge that will shake you out of any mid-summer rosé rut.


The 100% grenache rosé from this female-founded wine brand tastes as beautiful as it looks, with berry and stonefruit notes accented by subtle hints of florals and a label designed by Marrakech-based artist LRNCE that will make it an instant hit at any party this season.


When you think of luxurious French rosé, your first thought might not be of musician Post Malone, but the recording artist's crisp, Provencal-style rosé has quickly become a fan favorite for its refreshing palate of fresh fruit that makes it perfect for poolside sipping.


This light and smooth rosé is another wine sourced from Côtes de Provence in France, a hotspot for pink wine lovers. The crisp blend of Grenache, Cinsault, and Syrah grapes also has a hint of peach and red currant for a fruity aroma you'll no doubt enjoy.


More Bourbon and Sherry aged malt from the Highlands, this time from Old Pulteney. Another bottle that ups the complexity a bit, the sherry influence definitely brings more of that full, rich, dark fruit flavor. This is balanced with oaky, vanilla, and almond notes from the bourbon barrels.


Sweet, bright, and clean are the recurring terms that are used by Abov users to describe this single malt. Be warned, however, as although most whiskeys on this list sit between 40-45% ABV, this bottling comes in at a much higher 57.1% meaning it packs a punch. A few drops of water may serve you well to dilute it a bit and enhance the fruit-forward malt.


Distinctly aged in Bordeaux Wine casks, the fruit flavors are more dark fruit and berry driven, with a layer of vanilla sweetness. Unfortunately, this was a limited edition release, so definitely worth grabbing a pour if you are lucky enough to come across a bottle. 041b061a72
