The most distinctive and unique creations have been selected to carry the Showcase Collection banner.
Many of our wine kits stand apart from our other offerings and have been deemed worthy of Showcase designation. Their distinction may come from breakthrough technology, such as our exclusive Crushed Grape Packs; best of vintage Limited Release wines; unique regional wines or any wine which we believe reflects a new level of excellence or discovery for the wine hobbyist. The level of excellence may require extra processing steps and, while designed to be bottle-ready in as little as 6 weeks, may require lengthier cellaring time to show at their peak.
6-WEEK, REDS 18L. KIT / WHITES 16L. KIT
The red wine kits include a huge 18 litres of varietal juice and concentrate. These guys are the only kit manufacturer that include a crushed skin pack made from over 12 lb of entirely new, fresh, never-processed skins that come from the same harvest lot as the juice in your kit. The 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 costs more to produce, but we think the results are well worth it!
The red wine kits come with all the ingredients you need to make a great wine out of the box.
While ready to bottle and drink in about 6 weeks, we recommend aging these wines for a year or more to see the 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. And DO NOT expose to sunlight or fluorescent light, keep in a dark place (especially if you are aging in a carboy).
Makes approx 30 bottles of finished wine.
