The addition of a grape skin pack to our premium wine kits enhances not only the body, mouth-feel, tannin and colour of the wine, it does so without increasing the need for extra ageing. These wines drink very well soon after bottling, and will improve with bottle ageing.
4 week wine kits that continue to set the standard by yielding wines of excellent quality, flavour and aroma. The wines on sale this month are Sangiovese (formerly Chianti): firm, dry red wine style made famous by Tuscany. Tannic and robust, this well-structured wine is ripe with flavours of berries and spice. Superb with veal or spicy pasta. And Chamblaise: blended from Chenin Blanc and Colombard grapes, this juice produces a crisp, semi-dry wine, with a clean, refreshing aftertaste. May be enjoyed immediately after bottling. $10 off the regular price.
4 week wine kits yielding wines of excellent quality, flavour and aroma. This month the wines on sale are Chilean Merlot: originating from the world famous Maipo Valley wine region in Chile, this reputable Merlot is a soft and supple variation with powerful fruit and spicy flavours. Renowned for its ripe cherry character, Merlot is a perfect partner for red meats, lamb, and hearty stews. A must have on those crisp autumn evenings. And Italian Pinot Grigio: the Italians have their own way with the Pinot Gris grape variety, and in the process they create a special magic with it that’s unmatched elsewhere in the wine world. Though dry in character and with a pleasant zip of acidity, this Pinot Grigio shows off a pleasant floral fragrance and tremendous fruit flavours, making it the perfect picnic accompaniment. $15 off the regular price.
