DetailsThis Sauvignon Blanc has a crisp, elegant, and fresh taste. This wine is very good in the warmer months because of its lighter body and refreshing flavor. This concentrated juice (68 Brix) will make an excellent wine on its own, or blend it with another fruit or Alexander's Concentrate for a truly unique wine. Other ingredients you will need: Campden Tablets, Yeast Nutrient, Bentonite, Wine Yeast, Acid Blend, and Sparkalloid or other clarifier. Use One 46 oz. can for 2.5 gallons.

4.8 / 5.05 ReviewsInhave bought this product before and the quality of wine cocentratemare always very good. Iwill buy more from Midwest.August 23, 2018Purchased
8 months agoAn Excellent ChoiceFive gal of wine was made in February 2017 with Alexanders Sauvignon Blanc juice concentrate, using a procedure found at this website with some modifications.
As of June 2017, the wine has a very light yellow color in clear bottles, and is virtually water white in the glass.
Even though it’s only four months old, its clarity and taste is as good or better than that which I’ve purchased, or made myself six previous times over the past 11 years using alternate juice sources.
Based on this experience my future wine making will use this or other Alexanders juice concentrates most if not all the time.July 3, 2017Purchased
over 2 years agoWell,Still waiting for the yeast to start. Thank you for address thisJanuary 23, 2016Spectacular Strawberry blend!Used this this spring to make a strawberry SB. Bulk aging but already spectacular! Due to the golden nature of the SB the product is more a peach color, but already has a delightful strawberry luster taste. I use a full can with bountiful fresh berries in a 6 gallon batch. Really lovely so far. The final judgment is reserved until April 2014. So far, YUMMY!July 27, 2013works good done rightI thought it works best as a one gallon, the acidity turns out just fine just the way it is, with d47 i got a very nice wine..which is great because d47 works so good with honey ...i can add a touch of something...August 8, 2010

Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 6 answersThe can says to add 5 cups of granulated sugar when hydrating the concentrate. Is this correct?. I've done other wine kits that didn't require additional sugar, So the sugar content must be significantly lower on these. My concern is what will that much processed cane sugar do to the final product?BEST ANSWER: You are correct when assuming these cans of concentrate have low levels of sugar. Adding 12 cans of water to the concentrate to make 5 gallons of wine further dilutes it. I have used Alexanders for years and my directions call for 5 LBS. of sugar, not cups, and they turn out fine. Other wine kits have enough natural sugar but not these cans.So after reading the responses, I'm going to purchase another can or two of grape concentrate. I suspect only using two 46 ounce cans of grape for a 5 gallon batch...it isn't going to taste much like a Sauvignon Blanc - being so heavily diluted? Thanks for the responses!
