Details

One of the six original players in Bordeaux wines, Malbec is definitely the burliest, with inky dark color, robust tannins and rich, juicy plum-like flavors. These are backed up by blackberry and black cherry aromas, while an undercurrent of leather and gamey-earthy notes flirts with pepper and tobacco to draw out the finish.

South Americans know Malbec's strength, and they serve it with spicy grilled meat of all kinds--lamb, venison, beef and pork--but it works equally well with robust spicy foods, especially Mexican Mole.

Malbec with Character
Makes a deep red Malbec with a great taste and bouquet. I used a liquid yeast and left it in the primary for 21 days.

Malbec
I have purchased about 5 Malbec kits, and it is one of our favorite wines. I had a 'stuck' fermentation in 1 of the kits & ended up bottling a sweeter version. I will purchase this again.

How many gallons does this kit make?
A shopper on Feb 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I just made my second batch of this wine. It makes 6 gallons. One of my favorites!!!
How many hours does it take until the airlock starts showing fermentation has started. It's been a day and nothing yet?
A shopper on Nov 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: When I used this kit it took about a week. I thought something was wrong, but it just took some time for the yeast to start working. I had actually ordered more yeast because I thought the first batch was bad, but by the time it arrived, it was bubbling away.
How long does it take for fermentation to start? It's been a day and no action yet.
Stephen O on Nov 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Greetings Stephen!
I've done several Malbec kits with different results. Slow fermentation can result from many factors. Residual sterilizing agent, cooler fermentation temperature, dead yeast etc. I usually mix 3/4 yeast packet to 1 cup 80 degree juice & tbsp of sugar as a kick-starter reserving the 1/4 packet as a backup or booster in a day or so. I've had fermentation start within 10 hours - 3 days in different batches. Usually cooler wine must was the problem but the eventually kicked in gear. After 4 days and no fermentation draw some must and mix with 1/4 cup sugar add a little yeast and supercharge it. I've found using a plant seed starting mat beneath the fermentation container also helps, keeps the must from chilling to low. Hope this was helpful. Cheers!
