Cellar Craft's Sterling Collection red wine kits are the only budget-level red wine kits on the market that include a "virgin," never-processed crushed grape pack to include in the fermentation. Made entirely from region-specific varietal juice and concentrate, and skins from the same harvest lots that the juice comes from, these kits produce a true varietal wine on a short timeline! Designed to be bottled in 5 weeks, these kits will benefit from an additional 6-12 months of cellaring in the bottle.
Makes 6 gallons, or 2 cases, of finished wine
Cellar Craft's Description
10.5 litres of must using California and Italian Barbera is fermented on a 1.5 litre virgin California Barbera crushed grape pack to deliver a medium-bodied wine with unique complexity and character. Deep crimson colour. Fruity aromatics dominated by raspberry and blackberry with light spicy notes and a suggestion of vanilla. Well-rounded mouth-feel. Flavours of black fruit and a nice finish. Six months ageing is recommended to refine the balance between fruit, spice, tannins and oak. Will continue to develop for more than a year. This wine should match well with a wide variety of hearty foods -- Italian pasta with tomatoes, eggplant, chicken, or red meats. Anything barbequed.
