French Rosé Wine Kit - RJS Cru International

SKU: 42040

Pink wine has a reputation for being soft and sweet and less assertive than other table wines, but this doesn't have to be true, especially for rosé. In fact, it's usually blush wines that are sweet, and they can be made by blending a small amount of red wine into a white base and adding sugar.

Pink wine has a reputation for being soft and sweet and less assertive than other table wines, but this doesn't have to be true, especially for rosé. In fact, it's usually blush wines that are sweet, and they can be made by blending a small amount of red wine into a white base and adding sugar.

Not so with rosé! It must be made with 100% red grapes, lightly macerated and quickly pressed. It's this treatment that gives robust and dry French rosé ripe, juicy flavors of strawberry, raspberry and citrus, with aromas of melon and strawberry leading to a crisp finish with a tiny touch of spiciness.

Serve lightly chilled with Southern-style barbecue, shellfish (especially bouillabaisse or cioppino) or soft cheeses and fruit.

I just love dry rose.
This wine turned out great. Slight floral nose and taste. I love a dry rose, especially in summer. I will definitely order more of this

Awesome summer wine
I remember drinking rose' a long time ago and enjoying that it wasn't sweet, then rose' on the market (bottled) was too sweet. After looking at the ratings on this wine base, it was one of the first summer wines we made. It is delicious and everyone we have given it to, even wine enthusiasts, love it. It is semi-dry and not sweet, perfect with fish and chicken or served before dinner. It has a lovely color, we bought another box to make more to get us through the summer and give as gifts! It is ready to drink after bottling.

Really nice kit
This kit came out really well. I swapped out the EC1118 that came in the kit for Lalvin 71B to boost esters and knock the malic acid down a little. Not a necessary change but I think it improved the wine. Beautiful light rose color with notes of strawberry, melon, banana, and pineapple.

Lovely.
The color is beautiful. This is a very dry wine, to which I prefer; however, some of my friends thought this was going to be along the lines of a white zinfandel. NOT. I will definitely buy another kit and keep it to myself. Serve it very chilled.

Other than bottles and closures, does this kit include everything required, or does it assume that I already have certain ingredients (for example yeast) or equipment (tanks, filters)?
A shopper on Dec 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: These kits contain grape juice, yeast, any basic chemicals and refiners you might need, and labels. They don't include bottles, corks, fermenters, corkers, carboys, wine thiefs, siphons, or other equipment. Many of them don't include lables but I think these do.
How soon can you drink it?
A shopper on Oct 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This wine is a great if you don't feel like having white but still want something fresh and lighter. Great aroma and I always have it chilled. I made it early spring and have been drinking it all summer. Given a few bottles as presents and everybody loved it!
How much wine does this kit make?
L O on Sep 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Its a 6 gallon kit and you should end up with 26 tp 30 bottles. Just about every 6 gallon kit i have made yields 28 bottles. The french rose is a very nice dry rose wine, goes well with anything
