DetailsAçaí, a small dark purple fruit, tastes like a cross between a rich blackberry /ripe raspberry and dark chocolate--it's so tasty, that you can hardly believe that the high levels of polyphenols also make it good for you! This intense fruit combined with sweetly tart, ripe raspberries creates a powerhouse of a wine that's still easy to sip and enjoy in the summer sunshine. Enjoy all by itself, or with a tiny piece of high cacao chocolate for an amazing treat.

5.0 / 5.05 ReviewsSecond brew as good as the first!Brewed it on a whim. it turned out a little on the sweet side but very tasty. You can always add a little water? The family raved about it! (unlike my hop bombs?)Easy to make and short turnaround makes this a easy brew (hour?) The second brew was requested or demanded by the family. All is good!June 19, 2016Rapture KitEasy to make, taste great. I add sugar to bring up the alcohol content.December 5, 2016Purchased
1 year agoLove itI have made this wine twice and just bought a 3rd kit. It is a sweeter wine with great flavor. I would recommend it to any one that likes a sweeter wine!December 5, 2016Purchased
8 months agoLOVE ITThis wine started out perfect. The specific graity was right on when we started it. It was taking a long time for it to get to the finishing SG. I called the help line. They were great. I got it closer to the correct SG and went ahead and finsihed and bottled it. It taste amazing. It is only 8% because we couldn't get the specific gravity down. We bottled 29 bottles about a month ago and we only have 2 left. Our friends love it, too.April 21, 2016Easy to do. Easy to drink.The kit providers all the fix'ens. Nothing hard or difficult to do. Short turnaround provides a perfect way to fill in the gaps while brewing and waiting for you're regular beers. My batch didn't ferment out all the way because of the time of year and family commitments. A bit to sweet for my taste but a quart of water added to the keg brought me back to normal. Deffinetly a winner and will brew again.February 21, 2016

Browse 1 question Browse 1 question and 22 answersI'm at the clarifying stage, day14 and wondered if it is alright to go past this a few days?BEST ANSWER: By clarifying stage, I'm assuming that you mean that you'v stopped the fermentation process, etc., and have transferred the wine to a car boy. If this is correct, absolutely! Once you have begun the racking process, it really doesn't matter how long the wine sits in the car boy between each time that you rack, or how long it sits in the car boy-period-as long as it is sealed off from air or anything else getting into the wine with an air lock (Except that you won't want to do it sooner, or it won't have settled enough to bother racking). Although it's not our normal practice, when we have had a lot of batches going at once, we have allowed our wine to stay in the car boy for up to 8 months, racking it periodically as we have time. This has never negatively affected our wine. In fact, sometimes the wine never even gets bottled, we just keep skimming some off when we rack it and drink it as we go! I hope this answers your question. By the way, the Acai Raspberry Rapture wine is our favorite of all the kit wines we've made.
