Argentinean Malbec (with crushed grape pack)………………………….Oak 3 / Body 4 / Sweetness 0
The 10.5 liter must-pack uses Argentinean Malbec juice and is fermented on virgin Argentinean Malbec crushed grapes. The finished wine shows deep, purple-hued colour, is medium-bodied with complexity and character that exemplifies Argentina’s signature grape. Plum and raspberry flavours and aromas introduce the wine with chocolate notes following. The finish encores the fruit and introduces mineral tones against bright acidity. Age at least 6 months for mature flavour and balance. In Argentina, this wine is the national favourite for barbeque beef and spicy sauces.

International GSM (with crushed grape pack)……………………………Oak 3 / Body 5 / Sweetness 0
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.

 

CALIFORNIA RESERVE RED WINE KITS

California Reserve Cabernet (with crushed grape pack)……………..Oak 3 / Body 5 / Sweetness 0
This California Cabernet, fermented on a 1.5 litre virgin crushed California CABERNET SAUVIGNON grape pack, delivers a characteristically firm-tannin wine with loads of black fruit character made more interesting by the vanilla notes from the oak. The aromatics suggest blackberry and black currant. Flavour is centered around red and black currants which remain evident through the nice finish. Six months of ageing should reveal a harmonized wine with somewhat softened tannins, but the wine will improve for a year or two. This is a wine to serve with beef and lamb.

California Reserve Merlot (with crushed grape pack)…………………Oak 1 / Body 4 / Sweetness 0
California Merlot with 1.5 litres virgin crushed California MERLOT grape pack. The wine releases aromas of raspberry and cherry and a subtle toasted note, followed by flavours of raspberry and strawberry. Gentle tannins and well-integrated oak contribute structure to the fruit-driven profile without being too aggressive. Should show its true character in about 6 months, but will continue to develop for at least a year. This soft red pairs with red meats and will work well with roast chicken.

California Reserve Pinot Noir (with crushed grape pack…………….Oak 3 / Body 3 / Sweetness 0
We use 10.5 litres of California Pinot Noir must (and an accent of Pinotage) fermented on a 1.5 litre virgin California Pinot Noir crushed grape pack for this bright and fruity wine. Expect to enjoy lively black cherry and cranberry aromas and flavours against subtle spice and almond in the background. A few month of ageing will subdue the oak and tannins to get the fruit shine and define the medium-length finish. May be cellared for a year or more. The soft, light to medium-bodied wine may be lightly chilled and enjoyed as an aperitif, or serve with chicken, pork, or simple beef dishes (not recommended for your best steaks or rich, braised foods). Pairs well with salmon.
