DetailsMaster Vintner™ Shiraz makes 6 gallons of earthy, rich, velvety red wine with flavors of black fruits hints of bittersweet chocolate, plums, black cherries and blackberries that linger on to a long finish.
Ripe, full and concentrated, this wine bursts with aromas of blackberry, notes of black cherry and blueberry and an assured spiciness.
Serve with rich, flavorful dishes like osso buco, roast lamb, traditional Hungarian goulash. For a purely American treat, Carolina pulled pork or Texas brisket. For culinary adventurers, red wine braised octopus. Shiraz isn't just a meat-eating wine though: try it with Puy lentils braised with mushrooms and root vegetables for a savory, satisfying meal.
Serve slightly cool (65F) to keep the tannins firm and the fruit lush — and even if you're not doing a food pairing, try it with a piece of bittersweet chocolate. You'll be amazed at how well they go together!

4.8 / 5.04 ReviewsShiraz - Master Vintner Winemaker's ReserveGreat kit, good instructions, and great wine. The instructions say it tastes good when bottled - and they are right! I would definitely buy again.July 30, 2016Master Vintner Shiraz is excellentI'd tried other brands of Shiraz and Tim's is the best hands-down. People come back and ask for it specifically (not just because it's free). We like the mild blends of fruit and good finish. Of course, it's great that you can drink it as soon as the corks cure!December 6, 2016Purchased

Browse 4 questions Browse 4 questions and 19 answersHow many liters are in the concentrate?BEST ANSWER: This kit has 10 liters/2.6 gallons of concentrateDoes wine kit come with labels and corks?BEST ANSWER: No it does not, but the wine itself is amazing! One of my top 3 out of maybe 15 different kit wines that I've made. You can get corks and label paper separately... the label paper is awesome, you can get creative on the computer to design your own labels!Do any of your wine kits include grape skins?BEST ANSWER: I made the shiraz last year and was disappointed by the low acidity. It made a very soft, bland wine. It could have used some skin in the concentrate to leach out some tannin. If you make this, add extra oak as it is softer than a cheap jug wine.California grapes?BEST ANSWER: Juice in the kits are sourced from grapes all over the world. This helps ensure a great balance in the wine. Unless the kits are stated from an area, then the majority of the juice will be from that location.
