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
We picked a classic mix of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvédre grapes in Gard, France, on the west side of the Rhône river, for the foundation of this example of Southern Rhône-style wine. The French juices were augmented with Syrah concentrate from California to add body and depth of flavour. Fermentation on the French virgin crushed grapes produces a dark, toasty, and racy wine typical of the Rhône. Bright fruit and violet aromas define the nose. Blackberry, black cherry, fig, cocoa, and licorice flavours intermingle on the palate. The finish lingers with more fruit, herbs, and a suggestion of spice. The wine shows best with 6 to 12 months of age. Pairs well with chicken, pork, and roasted vegetable dishes. With age, stands up well to grilled or roasted beef.
