DetailsWonderfully fruity, crisply refreshing and bursting with fruit, Tropical Bliss™ Raspberry Merlot is the perfect sipping wine for a summer’s day.
Aromas of fresh raspberries merge with the red fruit, berry and cherry from the Merlot grape. Rich and medium bodied, it explodes with luscious raspberry flavor and is perfectly balanced between ripe raspberry tartness and a luscious, off-dry finish.
Ready to drink in only four weeks, it’s robust enough for barbecue or red meat, but drinkable on it's own--or with friends!

5.0 / 5.01 ReviewA very fun process along with excellent results!This was my first Wine Fermentation and all ingredients and instructions were great and very easy to follow.
I am drinking the Wine now after bottling the rest and overall this is a very nice, aromatic and pleasant to drink Wine. Clarity is very nice and the color is beautiful.
The included Raspberry Essence that is added right before bottling definitely sweetens and smooths out the Wine and is perfectly sweet and not in any form of a "Dessert Wine" sweetness.
I look forward to brewing and reviewing all the other 1 Gallon Kits that I ordered from Midwest.
Purchase these Kits and enjoy and share the awesome results!January 16, 2018Purchased

Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 11 answersThe kieselsol in my kit is crystalized. Can I still use it or is it an indication that the package has been compromised?BEST ANSWER: The kieselsol in my kit was also crystallized. Since I’m usually the only one that drinks my wine I don’t use use finishing agents or sulfites. I think your question would be best directed towards Midwest Supplies because rehydration of the crystals with water may not be the correct thing to do.is this a sweet wine?BEST ANSWER: Hi Dale, I consider this a semi-sweet wine...I usually drink dryer reds such as Cabernet. I ordered this kit so I could have a sweeter wine around for guests and family that like a little sweeter wine than I do. The fruity raspberry flavor is pleasant and the merlot blend keeps it from being too sweet. This kit makes a nice enjoyable wine. Everyone I have shared it with is impressed! Hope that helps you.what is the alc.%on this kit?BEST ANSWER: Based on the instructions for this kit your starting gravity should be 1.056 or higher. You could expect anywhere from 5-7% ABV depending on how much water is used.
