Product 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.

Yield: 6 Gallons

Malbec Kit

Haven't fermented this kit yet - but the first one I bought and fermented reinforced my love for this wine. I will buy it again. And again. And again

your wine kits are very good and so is the finished wine. I also ordered a Niagara wine base and was disappointed. The look of wine has a great deal with the presentation. The white wine base you sent was sweetened with corn syrup this made the wine look brown. clear syrup would be better.

These kits are easy to make and delicious when finished. The price point yields the expectation that the finished product might taste something like hobo juice but the kits are astonishingly good to the point where people say silly things like "you made this?" and "wow, this is way better than I anticipated".

As with any fermentation, sanitize everything that comes into contact with the wine and keep your fermentation temperature constant. Also use good water (either bottled or filtered) and the quality of your finished product will reflect. I ferment in conicals so my times go a little longer than the directions state, I run these kits around 4 months and then keg and bottle the remainder. The extra time works well for clarifying.

I have yet to encounter anyone who didn't enjoy the wine from these kits. Even my wife's high brow friends who consume expensive grape while sailing or watching polo (or whatever high society people do while us peasants toil in the fields). I will continue buying these kits because I enjoy good wine that doesn't impact my ability to pay things like the mortgage and utilities.

Buy with confidence and if something doesn't turn out just remember two things: we drink our mistakes and wine stoppers are for losers.
