Description

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 Showcase Series red wine kits include a huge 18L of varietal juice and concentrate! Additionally, Cellar Craft is the only kit manufacturer who includes a crushed skin pack made from over 12lb of entirely new, fresh, never-processed skins that come from the same harvest lot as the juice in your kit. These skins have more tannin and flavor to impart in the wine and are 100% true to the varietal that you're making. This unique practice in the wine kit industry may cost a little more to produce, but we think you'll agree that the results are well worth it!

Like other wine kits on the market, Cellar Craft's Showcase Series red wine kits come with all the ingredients you'll need to make a great wine out of the box. However, we encourage you to also experiment with different yeast strains and oak styles to create a wine that is exactly what you're looking for and truly unique.

While technically ready to bottle and drink in 6 weeks, Cellar Craft recommends aging these wines for 1 year or more to see full development of the wine's character. Choose to age in the carboy if you want the opportunity to play around with acidity and finishing tannins later, or age in the bottle to see what you get straight from the manufacturer. Just be careful - we all know how hard it is to keep your hands off once the wine's in the bottle!

Makes 6 gallons, or 2 cases, of finished wine

Cellar Craft's Description

White Sands Vineyard, Yakima Valley, Washington
Bold, yet elegant. This Yakima Valley Merlot is big and full with up-front waves of raspberry, blackberry and plum. Subtle notes of cedar and mocha follow the fruit. Over time, the flavours harmonize while the select oak contributes a tempering vanilla note and establishes a sumptuous combination of textures and well defined structure. Dark, rich and intense, it is a wine worthy of aging; will continue to improve for at least 2 years in the bottle.

Nice wine!
Very nice wine! Make sure you age it at least a year. I've made several Cellar Kraft wines and they've all been great. Don't be impatient.

Cellar Craft Showcase Collection - Washington State Merlot
I loved this kit. Once it aged in the bottle for 2 years, the flavor was deep and intense. Maybe the best kit I have ever made. I've been making wine kits for 7-8 years now. After 1 year in the bottle it was nothing special, but once it hit 2 years, BAM. I'm starting several more kits of this now for the future. I hope it is still as good.
