Old Vine Zinfandel w/ Skins Wine Kit - Master Vintner Sommelier Select

SKU 42593



Product Details

When vines get past their fourth decade, they produce fewer grapes, but much more intense fruit, giving rich, dense wine with great character and ageing potential.
Medium-full bodied with firm acidity, this Old Vine Zin* shows a combination of red and black fruits--raspberry, blackberry, fig, plum and raisin, along with an intriguing black pepper spiciness on the rich, rolling finish. An excellent match with dark chocolate (try it!), it's also a great barbecue wine (especially chicken), or with lamb, pulled pork or grilled burgers.

*This recipe kit uses a RealGrape pack to boost flavor and body. Because the grape skins are not dried, they take up more space in your fermentor. This recipe requires the larger 7.9 gallon wine fermentor.

Old Vine Zinfindel

I received my order well packaged and in a very timely manner.

Good kit-one shortcoming

Quality components, good solid instructions. The "goodness" of the wine is yet to be determined as it is entering hte secondary fermenter today.

Advice: Winexpert kits w/skins kits come with a cheesecloth bag for Skins-pulp-and-sticks. This kit does NOT (although it instructs you use a bag of your own gleaning). Be aware of this, as I was scrambling to find something to use on day 1. Left me a little perturbed

old vine zinfendel

this is going to be a very good red wine, will be capable of giving a final decision in Sept. 2019 after bottling

Should be great!

So far so good! Still in the process of making it but I am excited about it.

ovz wine kit

I really can't write a review as the wine is still in secondary fermentation. One comment I would like to make is that this kit will work best with a 7.9 gallon primary fermenter. With the skins pack and the juice itself it nearly filled a 6.5 gallon fermenter.
