Are you a homebrewer interested in expanding your fermentation hobby? Well, why not jump into winemaking! Our wine kits are an excellent way to make high quality wine at home, without requiring all of the large equipment that wineries use. We have dozens to choose from, so no matter what your favorite type of wine, we're certain to have a kit you'll like!
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.
This kit produces 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.
